There’s really no way to avoid St. James Park if you’re visiting Buckingham Palace and you definitely shouldn’t miss it! It’s a beautiful park! My favorite spot is at the bridge - great views from either direction!

One of the London Parks which each have their own distinctive charm. Wonderful to walk round and see the birds etc. Not to be missed.

I call it Squirell park as squirells are all around you, mainly if you have some chocolate in your hands (noticed they are chocolate addicted), but you shouldn´t feed them.

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

Just grab an available chair and the collectors will soon arrive - sometimes they are not around so that would be some spare cash to spend on a charity
