A tour of the five Royal Parks in central London, each with its own history and particular atmosphere. Hear where Charles II got into trouble for picking flowers for one of his mistresses, why the name of London Zoo's Winnie the Bear lives on nearly a hundred years after her death and which British Prime Minister was once robbed in Green Park. Find out too where you can hire a pedalo, visit an Italian garden and see some pelicans whose ancestry dates back 350 years.
