Things to do in Surrey – A walk in Coombe Wood Gardens Park

Coombe Wood is a small woodland and garden area in the old village of Coombe, Upper Shirley, in the London Borough of Croydon near the junction of Coombe Lane and Conduit Lane. The Coombe Wood Gardens are divided into a series of rooms which together give an all year round display of shrubs and plants set against a backdrop of mature woodland.

We were really impressed by the size and the density of this woodland, a walk through the park with it’s undulating hills and steps, it’s quite a physical exercise.

The stag red deer in the park @ #ParkHill in #Croydon #Surrey

A red deer stag has found his way to a recreational park, Park Hill in Croydon to the astonishment of the local community that were using the park. For obvious security reasons, the park has now been closed while they wait for advice in what to do with this beautiful creature.

I was able to capture this photograph only towards the evening from outside the park’s gate, when the deer decided to move in the middle of the field to have a lie down. We hope that they will find the best solution without hurting this beautiful animal.

An afternoon in London

Tower_Bridge_London_Photography_@FabrizioMalisan_FB_IMG_9130

Tower Bridge London: I’m not much of a city person, but every time I go into London, I understand why people like it so much and travel from all over the world to come and visit it.
There’s a particular atmosphere around the city. I like the contrast between the busy, everyday workers, blending in with the tourists.
