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.

The Measure of All Things

• Discover the incredible research carried out at NPL
• Be amazed by the science and technology and how it benefits the UK
• Meet NPL scientists and visit our world-class laboratories
• Learn about measurement through hands-on demonstrations

Measurements are the quantitative way of comparing of one thing with another. The International System of Units, also known as the SI, is the most widely used system of measurement in the world.

The International System of Units is a globally agreed system of measurements that has been in place for more than two centuries. There are seven base units, which make up the SI, and guide the measurement of quantities like physical size, temperature and time.
As science advances, ever more accurate measurements are both required and achievable. This year four of the standard units of measurements – including the kilogram – are being defined in a new, more accurate way. NPL has led the international research that culminated in this change. Come and find out more about measurement and help us celebrate this scientific achievement.
