Once a historic estate and parkland
Belhus Woods country park now has a
diverse landscape of woodlands,
grasslands and lakes. You can fish,
play games, fly kites, have a picnic,
cycle or ride your horse here. You may
prefer just to sit by the tranquil
waters, feeding the birds or, in
spring to wander quietly through a
woodland carpet of bluebells. With
easy access from the M25 this is an
ideal spot to get away from the hustle
and bustle of London.
Green Flag Award winner 2005/06,
