“Pleasnt place to relax.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

This park is a great place to relax and take time out while sightseeing in London. You would hardly think that you are in the heart of London as you sit on the grass etc and watch a cheeky squirrel scamper around. The garden beds are usually full of flowers etc. Very central to Buckingham Palace, the Queens Mews , War Cabinet Rooms, Whitehall and Horseguards.
