"Richmond Park is wonderful and brilliant for cycling or just a weekend walk. In terms of watching sport, it’s great to have Twickenham Stadium so close for the rugby! There are also lovely walks (pub stop in middle) between Twickenham and Richmond. The area has lots of tennis clubs, gyms and running clubs." - Graduate Trainee


"There are a lot of green spaces dispersed about the city. You can't go too far without stumbling across one. I only have to walk two minutes to my local park where I go for runs. More centrally in London there are outdoor exercise classes to get involved in such as yoga, some are free, all you need to do is sign up in advance." - Graduate Trainee
