Queen Elizabeth’s oak

Greenwich Park is one of eight Royal Parks in London and its home to a hollow tree named ‘Queen Elizabeth’s Oak.’ The Tudor queen was said to have often taken refreshment whilst relaxing in the shade of its branches which once grew in the grounds of Greenwich Palace.

Legend has it that her parents King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn danced around the tree during their long courtship.
