FAQ About London's parks
Contrary to popular belief, the answer is Richmond Park, not Hyde Park. Richmond Park is the largest of London's eight Royal Parks and is the biggest enclosed space in London. Richmond Park's royal connections go back a long way to Henry VIII, who was the first to call it Richmond, and before that, to Edward (1272-1307). During the plague in 1625, Charles I decamped from the claustrophobic infection center to the clean air of Richmond.
