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.

Each park has its own unique history and character, an element of which is often the subject of promotional posters. Chestnut Time at Bushey Park, the deer at Richmond and horse shows in Hyde Park have all been the subject of posters promoting open air London.
