Chair’s Welcome

I am delighted as Chair of the Friends to welcome you to our website. Bushy Park and Home Park are two wonderful large green oases in the south west corner of London. Feeling wild, they are natural places with ancient histories, fascinating heritage and superb wildlife. Both are Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) containing rare species. These are places to be enjoyed and conserved. Which is why the Friends exist, campaigning, supporting and protecting the parks, and enhancing visitors’ enjoyment with information, advice and guidance.

We are always pleased to receive feedback. You can contact us by clicking here.

    There is an exhibition opening at the Mall Galleries entitled Parks: Our Shared Heritage.

    This exciting new collaboration between The Royal Parks, the Office of Public Works and The Hearsum Collection will reveal many of the wonderful stories of these parks and show how they have gradually evolved to meet ever changing needs.

    The exhibition is on display at Mall Galleries from Thursday 27 July to Friday 11 August 2017.

    It is open daily from 10:00 to 17:00, and admission is free. Please notes that the exhibition will close at 12:30pm on 3 August.
