Even in November - this Park is absolutely beautiful. Lots of squirrels who will eat whatever you have right our of your hand. Beautiful birds, ducks, swans, pelicans. The leaves on the trees were changing while we were there which only made it even more beautiful - and the view of Buckingham Palace - well - you just have to... More

For a bit of peace and quiet while walking along The Mall to Buckingham Palace from Trafalgar Square pop into St James's Park on the left and enjoy the lake, the park and of course the wildlife.

A very nice park, with several attractions inside. If you love animals, dont forget to bring some nuts. The squirrels there will swarm you and make a good photo

I'm very fortunate to work in the St James's area of London and visit the park regularly and every time I do I find something different. It's always full of people regardless of the season, from cyclists, to sunbathers (deck chairs are available for hire in the summer months) to tourists. The park borders The Mall and Buckingham Palace and... More

Beautiful view of lake, swans and huge trees. It's a lovely place for kids too, they enjoy and you can relax in the shadow on lush green garden.

In summer or winter. When I lived in London I spent lots of time wandering in Hyde Park (love the Sunday morning folks at Speakers' Corner), Kensington (my son swam in the Serpentine--wish I had a photo), and Green Park. But my favorite is St James. Now when I return to visit or work I always stay near St James... More

St. James Park is a beautiful breath of fresh air when you want to get away from the frantic activity of London. The park is beautifully manicured and has excellent gardens and a lovely fountain. You can walk along the river or just relax and take in the flowers and other plantings. The park has large green spaces, but the... More

St. Jame's Park is so peaceful, and a great place to spend a lazy weekend afternoon. With places to sit with a blanket, it is perfect to enjoy the scenery on a warm fall day.
