attractive park that seemed like a nice place of relaxation. Between the fountains and the well groomed bushes, it provided a great green oasis in the city. Very close to London Museum- provides a place to rest after walking the museum.

We spent some time here during the summer. Nicely kept gardens. Plenty of room on the grasses areas to sit and enjoy the British summer. Cafe Tropea is located in one corner, and they serve excellent food and drink at reasonable prices.
