Vincent Square, central London

Tucked away behind bustling Vauxhall Bridge Road, Vincent Square is a surprisingly large expanse of peaceful green space near the heart of central London. However, the well-equipped and well-maintained playing fields and playground aren't open to the public - they belong to nearby Westminster School. Still, the square is worth a visit to see the upmarket Victorian terraces, the handsome red brick headquarters of the Royal Horticultural Society and the distinguished Grange Rochester Hotel. 7/10
