If you fly low-costers, you will know what I mean. The park invokes a feeling of limited legspace. In an endless competition for space in London what we are left with is tiny patches of green that people may call "gardens" or even "parks".

This is a pleasant place to walk or even run through. It is a long narrow park on the Embankment, which displays many memorials to noteworthy people and also some water features. There are plenty of benches to sit and relax.

Visited today, a great space with the noise and intensity of central London just feet away. Managed to get a seat on a bench to enjoy 30 minutes of relaxation. Worth a visit if your in the area and want to pause for a bit.

“The City” is one of London's most historic and

Yes you can, but on a lead as it is not a large grassy area, suitable for dog walking. It's a long narrow garden.

Hi,I'm really not sure. It would depend on the mobility challenges. (Just a thought - You could visit the nearby St James Park which is much bigger and has plenty of easy access tarmac paths). Hope this helps.
