This is a lovely place to visit, especially in the summer. It's surrounded by beautiful & historical buildings yet you feel out of the hustle & bustle of London

Apart from the amazing views that the Park offers, you should go to St. James if you want to have fun with squirrels. They are quite friendly and used to tourists. They even climb on you if you give them nuts... Of course don't be...More

As all parks in London, this park too is very picturesque. If you can, do visit. It is lovely to have a stroll, sit and enjoy the view.

What a way to escape from cars, noise and stress than immersing into this park, and walked it from East to West approaching Buckingham Palace,... fantastic fauna, trees and tranquility in the heart of London. Not that big that you can actually afford that stroll...More

A wide range of animals are in this park! Squirrels take food from your hand and pigeons are everywhere so hold onto your food. Really nice walk through the park seeing all the ducks, swans and pelicans on the lake.

This is one of my favourite places in London to have a stroll when I visit. I can take a shorter route from my hotel to the office but nothing beats walking through St James in the early morning when it is not so busy....More

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
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
