It's easy to forget that some of London's suburbs are home to glorious sights. The New River Loop is a pretty 2 km stretch of land by the New River. There's a wonderful old bridge, well-maintained lawns and some attractive wildlife.
The New River Loop sits just outside Enfield Town and though bordered by main roads, the noise is not too intrusive.
On those rare occasions when the sun makes an appearance I find this a perfect spot to gently bake under the afternoon sunshine.
If you want to do something more energetic, there's a nice walk to be had by the river and through Enfield Town Park. You may even be followed by some of the local wildlife that doesn't seem too bothered by the presence of so many chilled-out humans. Coots, mallards and Mute swans are amongst the area's many visitors.
