Never noticed these gardens! Exploring the city and feeling the need to restI ended up at Victoria Tower Gardens! It was great to just sit by the river, in a green park, within the busy city and just relax!

While London transport was down, we meandered to this park from Southbank. What a pleasant surprise it was! Spectacular views across the Thames and well maintained. There were plenty of benches to rest on and there was a nice playground and toilets at the south...More

As part of the '' back '' of Parliament, this park is a real oasis - lush and green, near the Thames beach and a bit away from the noisy traffic noise ... The tranquility of the park is more of an attraction than anything...More
