In the scheme's 22nd year, The Green Flag Awards have presented a record-breaking 1,883 Green Flags to green spaces large and small across the UK, almost 100 more than in 2017.

As well as traditional parks, some more surprising green spaces have achieved the awards this year, including university campuses, shopping centres, the Thames Barrier Park, War Memorials and burials sites.

International Green Flag Award scheme manager Paul Todd said, "It has been a record-breaking year for Green Flag Awards, and it's fantastic to see such a diverse range of locations have been recognised.

"We are proud to have so many wonderful green spaces in the UK for people to experience, and encourage the public to head outdoors, explore their local area and find even more unexpected green spaces they can enjoy."
