Beautiful place to take a stroll and skip the craziness of the busy Westminster area. Bring a packed lunch or coffee and relax by the water. Don't feed the animals though!

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham

up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
