A wonderful peaceful park in central London

Despite being in central London, I found this park very peaceful and relaxing whilst I waited for a friend. Walk through or sit and take in the atmosphere.....it's lovely.

Walked through this park on the way to see the outside of Buckingham Palace. It is a nice quiet oasis in the middle of London, where you can get away from it all.

Great park to sit relax and people watch. Next to Buckingham Palace on one end and the underground at the other.

Lovely little oasis in the city. Really enjoyed chilling and watching the world go by whilst enjoying the peace. Coffee available from the wooden huts, reasonably priced for London and not bad quality. Recommend if you need to escape the crowds.

This park is next to Buckingham palace. If the sun is out it's best to stop and enjoy the park. Old trees, some wildlife (squirrels are a plenty), a view of the palace, and lots more. Sit down and have a coffee...and a sandwich...and enjoy both natural and man made beauties.

Green Park isn't exactly a destination in itself but it's a nice place to lie and maybe have a picnic, very close to Buckingham Palace, not far from Piccadilly, the West End and shops. Doesn't have too much to offer in terms of street food but usually an ice cream van at the top end next to Piccadilly.

Late April and the daffodils have almost finished, but this park is turning green and is a delightful place to escape busy Piccadilly Street. Nice to walk from there to Buckingham Palace.

It makes for a nice stroll on a sunny day, but nearby St James Park is a better visual experience. But did enjoy people-watching, both tourists and Londoners alike

This park always feels less formal than the others, which makes it a great place for children to run & play & people to walk their pets. Also quite ideal for a picnic. Carole : )

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
