Not too far from Hampton Court, this wild park is full of deer and offers horse back riding & cycling for the disabled. Great place to take in (& figure out the rules) of a cricket match.

Bushy Park covers some 445 hectares (1,100 acres) of historic deer park. It was originally enclosed from ploughed farmland into three separate parks by Cardinal Wolsey and Henry VIII between 1500 and 1537. Still teeming with deer as in Henry's day, wander through this beautiful park, past Leg of Mutton Pond, Heron Pond and the Diana Fountain for a tranquil break.
