Bushy is the second largest Royal Park, with an area of 1,099 acres. Located to the north of Hampton Court Palace, and is home to around 320 free-roaming deer. Cycling allowed on roads, horse-riding permitted on rough grass. This historic parkland, with grassland, ancient trees, woodlands, ponds and streams, supports a rich diversity of fungi, plants and animals, and many species of birds and waterfowl.
The famous mile-long Chestnut Avenue, conceived by Sir Christopher Wren, was the formal approach to Hampton Court Palace and is flanked on both sides by horse chestnuts and lime trees. The park also features an artificial river and a large selection of sporting facilities. Various children's activities take place in Bushy Park.
