Londoners are very fortunate in having a large number of green open spaces, where they can escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Many of these were the former grounds of large houses or royal parks, whilst others were specially created as London expanded. The River Thames also offers Londoners a variety of day trips. Further outdoor attractions include London's public sculpture and historic sites like Highgate Cemetery. All these open air destinations have been promoted by London Transport posters.

Bronze : Since antiquity, bronze has been the most commonly used metal in cast sculpture because of its strength, durability and the fact that it is easily workable. At the beginning of the 20th century, modern sculptors moved away from the use of bronze. This means that today, the medium has a renewed sense of tradition.
