Travelling to London soon? There’s a new landmark to add to your must-see list, with the city’s first-ever riverside linear park set to open on the Greenwich Peninsula July 5. London’s answer to New York’s High Line, The Tide will be a hub for wellness and recreation, and will boast gorgeous views – perfect for a cheeky holiday snap!
Featuring timber-decked bridges and pathways of wildflowers and native pine and silver birch trees, the nine-metre-high park will be the first of its kind in the city. Designed by the architects behind New York’s famous elevated park, Diller Scofidio + Renfo, the new landmark will also boast sunken gardens, a 27-metre-long outdoor picnic table and two Damien Hirst sculptures.
Slated to become a site for artistic installations, The Tide will also host an array of exciting events and festivals – from the Turning Tides Festival (5-7 and 12-14 July) to performances from the Grammy award-winning Oumou Sangare. There’ll also be wellness-focused offerings like early-morning ‘sober raves’, yoga and Reiki.
