London’s Parsons Green, located in the London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, is full of great places to visit and see. The collection of independent shops, pubs and restaurants give you the feeling that you have stepped out of the station into a quaint English village. The contrast of these against the large green spaces makes it a great place to escape the city buzz.
Here are our top 5 picks of things to do if you find yourself in and around Parsons Green:
1) Aragon House
Located just a 5-minute walk from Parsons Green tube station, opposite the Green, Aragon House is a great option for those looking for a restaurant and bar, with a cosy pub feel and spacious alfresco dining. The food menu offers a great mix of lighter bites to delicious Sunday roasts and hearty comfort food. Not only that but they also offer 15 boutique hotel rooms for those travelling in for a weekend stay. Friendly staff, relaxing settings and aesthetic interior makes this the perfect spot for a date, dinner or brunching in the sun with friends!
This large pub’s terrace overlooks the green, making for the perfect outdoor place to enjoy a drink with friends. This spot was originally one of the most iconic Sloane pubs in London, and is still known to regulars as the “Sloaney Pony”. With a history dating back to 1688, and it’s beautifully classic interior and buzzing outdoor seating space it is certainly not one to miss! This pub has twice been listed as one of “London's best pubs”, presumably due to its wide range of ales, bottled brews and its fantastic selection of food - a perfect stop off on a summer’s day!
3) Green Spaces
Over the last 3 months with bars and restaurants shut through the city Londoner’s have taken to green spaces to relax and socialise with friends, and we appreciate them now more than ever! Parsons Green is situated between plenty of picturesque green spaces, so if you are in the area and craving an escape from the bustle of London’s city life as we ease out of lockdown, Parsons Green provides the perfect contrast, combining plenty of spots for drinks and dining with open green spaces.
Bishops Park offers the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing al fresco lunch in the warmer months, or to enjoy a brisk winter walk later in the year. With views enhanced by its riverside location, Bishops Park is the home to many events throughout the year (normally!) including numerous park runs, firework displays and the highly anticipated boat race! Another fantastic outdoor spot is The Hurlingham Park, located just an 8 minute stroll from Parsons Green tube station. This spot is a massive hit amongst its more sporty visitors, or those looking to feel some peaceful tranquility!
