A little park in the middle of London, between Buckingham Palace and Westminster, it is an oasis of calm and greenery. The view from the bridge over the lake of either Horseguards/Whitehall or Buckingham Palace is worth a photo for tourists and hobby-photographers alike. There are lots of places to sit down and there are usually a couple of tea/coffee stands, too.

Lovely park. A relaxing way to spend an hour or two walking through the park and feeding the squirrels. Remember to take some nuts for great photo opportunities!

A very enjoyable walk through the park, great for children as they can see the squirrels up close. Stroll at your leisure and enjoy the scenery, away from the hustle and bustle of London

Walked through the park but its currently undergoing repairs due to the 2012 olympics. Lots of areas fenced off. Still enjoyable and lots of squirrels about wanting feeding.

Nice place to escape to with a book when the sun is out, can get a bit cramped around lunch time but you can always find a spot
