Cockington is up there with the best of them when it comes to the nation's most beautiful parks.
A study by Flowercard looked at Tripadvisor reviews which included the words ‘beautiful’, ‘pretty’ and ‘picturesque’ to reveal the most beautiful parks across Britain.
And Cockington came in the Top Ten at number four with 1,243 ‘beauty’ reviews
With views of Buckingham Palace, London’s St. James’s Park took the the crown with 1,564. Second was Hyde Park also in London (1,387) and third was Princes Street Gardens in Edinburgh(1,318).
Cockington came in ahead of two of London's world-famous and landmark parks.
Kensington Gardens (1,140 beauty reviews) and Regent's Park (1,139) were rated fifth and sixth.
Flowercard said: "We might not have been able to see much of the world over the course of 2020, but in 2021 we’re hoping we’ll get to see more of the beauty right here at home in the UK. Britain is home to countless wonderful parks."
