The National Trust has reversed its decision to keep all its parks and gardens open after just a few days.

Now they have all shut, in a bid to try and restrict the spread of coronavirus. A major issue was that lots of people headed to these locations, due to a dearth of other things to do. Of course, nay Londoners do not have their own gardens.

Kew Gardens closes today too — another place that had attempted to stay open throughout the pandemic.

London's Royal Parks are remaining open — as are plenty of local parks — as a place for Londoners to exercise for their physical and mental wellbeing. However, they are pleading with crowds to observe social distancing.
