Britain's favourite flower and a national symbol, the rose is well represented in The Royal Parks. From the formal splendour of Kensington Gardens to the riotous summer scents of Queen Mary's Garden in Regent's Park, there is a bloom to suit everyone. Ancient varieties of rose were bred for their fragrance and colour; sadly many of today's roses are bred mainly to bloom for longer. If you want to remember how roses used to smell, get down to your nearest Royal Park.
