With the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization defining a forest as a contiguous area with at least 10 percent tree canopy cover, London qualifies as a forest.
London’s 3,000 parks offer a wonderful dose of nature, making the city one of the greenest urban hubs in the world. London is the world’s largest urban forest, 388,400 acres of it, an actual forest made of more than 8 million trees.
Next time you’re looking for an urban getaway in London, head to the forest!
