Enfield Chase[edit]

Does Enfield Chase fall into this article? It is a former royal deer park in North London. Simply south 16:54, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

No - it is not one of the eight Royal Parks of today (see the Royal Parks website).
Strangely, informally Brompton Cemetery is also considered to be, or at least managed by, part of the royal parks. Just to comment. Simply south 17:08, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
That's true - I'm not sure why it was mentioned in the article before. Well done for spotting it. --Dave A 17:20, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

Royal palaces[edit]

According to this article "Hampton Court Park is also a royal park within Greater London, but, because it contains a palace, it is administered by the Historic Royal Palaces, unlike the eight Royal Parks." But this doesn't seem to be a logical statement – Kensington Gardens, which is a Royal Park, contains Kensington Palace. Headhitter (talk) 10:44, 14 December 2014 (UTC)


I'm not sure I'd describe Greenwich or Richmond Parks as being 'in the suburbs'. Zone 2 in Greenwich's case... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:25, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
