“Bird lover's paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

For me London's most attractive park. Mainly dominated by the large natural looking lake. Home to many varieties of birds all eager to entertain at the offer of food!
Nice cafe/restaurant.

“Lovely park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Really lovely park with views of Buckingham Palace and looking the other way the London Eye. I was just cutting through but enjoyed the views and took a couple of photos. Pretty even in winter.

“Wonderful for bird-lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

All London's parks are lovely - this is no exception. There is a huge variety of birds on the lake - with boards explaining what they are. There is a large cafe overlooking the lake.

A stroll through the park brings you to Buckingham Palace or Horseguards Parade (by Downing Street) or you can wander back up The Mall to Trafalgar Square.

Lovely - even in February.

“It's gone to the birds.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

I had a great time spending the better part of the afternoon walking through St Jame's and taking in the sights. It was a great reprieve to have this large park in the center of the city. It was filled with water and trees and of course the birds, so many birds (I am referring to variety and just general quantity as well).
