“Pretty park”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

If you have time, stroll around in the park but if you don't…i would still pass by this place (walking briskly) as you make your way to other attractions nearby. I walked from Buckingham Palace to the park, its very close by. It wont hurt to take 10-15 minutes to see this park. Coming from someone who had about 8-9hrs in london before I had to catch a flight. LOL.

“Lovely space”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Whatever the weather (except rain and snow obviously) St James's Park is a good place to spend time. Lots of open space for kids to run about, or just a place to walk and think.

“Best park in London for kids”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

All children will enjoy seeing the ducks, swans, geese, lovely flowers, ponds and fountains here. A most enjoyable setting to let children run and play for a bit. Very close to Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, and Buckingham Palace.

“Don't forget your nuts!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Just about our favourite park in London. Loads to do, lots of lovely views and the squirrels are bonkers, come running right up to you and are very friendly, just don't forget your nuts to feed them, if you do you'll have furry friends forever.

“Beautiful park and a great place for afternoon stroll!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

I had a few extra hours in London and decided to take a walk around St. James Park which turned out to be a fantastic decision. The park is right in the center of London, but is a great place to get away for a few moments. Would recommend to any weary traveler who just needs some peace & quiet.
