This small park is right next to the Houses of Parliament. It's definitely worth a small detour if visiting the Parliament if only to see the 3 monuments in the gardens. There's one to Emmeline Parkhurst, British political activist and leader of the British suffragette...More

Lovely little park near the Houses of Parliament. Statue of the Burgers of Calais by Rodin. Lots of seating and over looks the mighty Thames. Tea place open in the Summer. Quite a hidden gem and place to chill away from the hustle of London

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
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
