You wouldn’t normally associate a capital city with an array of natural wonders, but autumn in London is an amazing spectacle thanks to its beautifully maintained parks and green spaces that are dotted around the city.
The city takes on a new feel that this time of year, so many visitors flock to London’s parks and gardens to witness the leaves changing colour and grab a few snaps of their deep red, burnt orange and golden views.
