A beautiful park. Lots of space to chill out and spend a quiet lunch time or afternoon. Always go with my girlfriend after a a day of shopping. Perfect sport for a picnic away from the hustle and bustle of the City. Have seen lots of mentions of Pelicans, but after a few visits i'm still yet to see them!

We had such a lovely walk around St James' Park. Amazing amount of bird life and the first squirrel I have ever seen! So adorable! Lovely on a sunny day, like we had.

St James feels like oasis in the city. A place to walk, to relax, to enjoy the nature. It is also a very friendly place for an inexpensive lunch picnic style. If you are on a budget buy a simple lunch at Tesco express and sit on the grass and have a feast with your companions.

A gorgeous park in the middle of one of the busiest cities in the world. If the sun is shining it is the best place. Beautiful.

St. James's Park is a beautiful walk - even on a cold rainy day. There are lots of different kinds of birds but the Queen's Eastern Great White Pelican's steal the show.

If the sun is shining and you are anywhere near Trafalgar Square/Westminster/Buckingham Palace it would be a crime not to visit the beautiful St James Park. If you have kids its a lovely place for them to take a break from pounding London pavements. Beautiful flowers, a lake with plenty of ducks, geese and swans, a small kids playground. There... More

It's so peaceful and well designed so that runners and walkers don't keep colliding! And surprisingly quiet considering its situation
