“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

I stumbled upon these gardens while exploring London and fell in love with them. Every part of the gardens is different, beautiful and interesting. From the ducks and swans in the lakes, to the deck chairs on the grass, this park has it all. A lot of people were running and cycling through the park, and others were casually strolling through, lazing out on deck chairs & park benches, or sprawled out on the grass soaking up the sun.
I'm sure the gardens would be just as beautiful in winter too, in a different way.
It's close to main attractions like Buckingham Palace so do pop in and check it out. You won't be sorry!

“The perfect walk from parliament to the Buckingham Palace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

The park is the perfect route from the Parliament and the Westminster Abbey to the Buckingham Palace. Lots of people walking and sunbathing in the summer. Beautiful nature. It worths making it your walk path to the palace or simply for a nice walk with your family.

“A great place to relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

St James`s park is another of the great green spaces of London, It`s fantastic for relaxing, taking photos, read a book, have a nice chat, and above all enjoy London from other view.
I highly recommend it for everybody.

“Gorgeous place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

We spent a pleasant afternoon there. The park is a good option for a walk and it is a nice place for meditation as well. On summer it is perfect for a picnic with friends. If you stay in London for a week or more, I advice you to visit there. If you're in a tourist short trip and stay considerably far away from the park, if you intend to visit the "main" attractions in London, you should leave the park for a next visit.

“Great experience!!! Beautiful gardens!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

We spent like two hours in St. James Park, walking around and watching birds, flowers and people. Was very nice time for the kids to play with doves, ducks, and squirrels. I enjoyed the trees and very well designed gardens. If you visit the park after Guard Change at Buckinham Palace, expect to have lots of people.
