St James Park is my favorite park in London. Go mid afternoon and enjoy a few hours of lovely paths full of nature and wildlife. I was (am) truly enamored with how friendly all of the parks animals were. Bring nuts!

I think it's the nicest park in London - full of birds and a nice walking path. Highly recommended especially for children or for those looking for some peace and quiet.

I love parks, but walking through St Jame's is like going to the country side. Head either 1st thing in the morning, or just at dusk, when the crowds are less, and enjoy the birds, and endless curious animals.

Smaller than Hyde Park and Kensington Park but it is still a beautiful park to visit. We manage to catch the guards going to Buckingham Palace for a change of duty and that was the bonus and highlight for our day. Enjoy the crowd where the children play, the sports enthusiasts jogging, the elderly strolling leisurely and enjoying the weather.... More

Very beatiful park ideal to take a walk, sit and relax. A alternative walk from Buckingham Palace to the Big Ben passing in the Horse Guards Parade.

Beautiful park in central London. Well worth wandering through if you're near Parliament Square/The Mall.

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
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 highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
