Garden Tour of London inSL

You may have noticed that London (both in the real world and virtual) has plenty of gardens. Because people in London have smaller gardens the communal garden became fashionable. In Second Life London we adopted this style of communal gardens. If you look around, you’ll find a lot of little gardens around the sims, just there for sharing and relaxing.

These gardens are dotted all over London. They’re great places for romance, exploring the city wildlife, finding new games to play and making them your own hideaway from the hustle and bustle of the hub.

One feature that makes London totally unique in Second Life is the many gardens dotted throughout these city sims. Knightsbridge enjoys several small public gardens.  Each one of these is unique and different.   In the centre of the region is a duck pond where you can sit and watch ducks swimming.

The town garden is a great place to stroll into and chill out to take the strain out of your busy life. You can relax, put your feet up and enjoy the bird sounds all around you.

After visiting the duck pond and the town garden go across the region by walking along Sloane Street.  Then turn left towards sexy Brits. At the end of the road to the left you’ll see Graham Collinson’s art gallery in the Underground building and to the right you’ll see a new info hub with its simple garden with seating areas.

 

Hyde Park

Hyde Park is one huge communal city garden.

 

Finally go through Sexy Brits and on to Big Ben.  From there you’ll get a view across Hyde Park which in itself is one big green lush area.  Within it you’ll also find lovely formal gardens created by Toxie next to the mansions at Palace Gardens.
