“Lovely In London”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

If you want a few moments of peace and quiet in the center of London, then go to St James' park. It is so tranquil with squirrels running round and the ducks on the pond. The park is so well kept, the flower beds are so varied and beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stroll to Buckingham palace before the hoards of people descended again.

“A genteel walk into the past”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

St. James Park is an oasis of peace and quiet in central London, and affords one great vistas from the bridge over the pond - looking west, trees frame a corner of Buckingham Palace, and looking east, one can see the London Eye looming over the buildings in Whitehall in the foreground.

“Great park for wildlife”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Busier than Hyde Park as it is smaller but equally nice to spend a few hours. The birdlife is amazing (including pelicans.) There should be places like this in all towns.
