Love walking thru this park, the lush greenery, water, birds. An oasis in the middle of the city. Great view of Buckingham Palace and a few spots to grab coffee or a bite. Highly recommend spending a little time exploring the park.

I've visited this park on sunny and less-sunny days. It's always a pleasure. Beautifully designed and maintained. It can get rather busy with tourists, but if you catch it on the right quiet morning, it's gorgeous. Kids will enjoy seeing the squirrels who are not...More

There are squirrels, who don’t afraid of people. Also buy some food from M&S or Tesco and you can do a lovely picnic there.

The park is very well made and kept. Even in April there are lots of flowering trees and plenty of blooming flowers. There are also different birds and squirrels. It's very nice for walking in sunny day.

We visited the park and were overwhelmed by how beautiful the grounds were kept. The flower beds were full of colour and beautifully thought out. A very enjoyable walk. Thank you to all who make it such a lovely place to be.

Well looked after park that gives you a break from the business of london. Nearby to Downing Street and Buckingham palace. Could do with more seating as there aren't many benches around.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to

Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
