Our top spots are as follows:

1) The logs at Regent’s Park

These are great for all levels, and the beautiful surroundings of Regent’s Park are an excellent spot for parkour. The park is great for a warm up, but be warned, this is not a good spot when it is raining as the logs can become lethally slippery and you could risk an injury.

Nearest tube: Bakerloo Line.

 

2) IMAX Spot

The tunnels and railings around the IMAX Cinema are perfect for traceurs of all levels. The nearby Southbank skate park also offers some great spots, and now that it is allowed to stay open it will prove a great area for parkour in the city.

Nearest tube: Jubilee, Bakerloo and Northern Lines.

 

3) Pimlico Estate

Please do not attempt any parkour moves that you have not yet been taught by an official instructor by yourself. London traceurs need to practice safely at all times.
