It is located between the Houses of Parliament (Palace of Westminster) and Lambeth Bridge, a nice small garden away from most tourists; there are several monuments in the park including The Burghers of Calais Monument and Buxton Memorial Fountain. There are benches throughout the garden for one to stick down and from a distance see the traffic on Westminster Bridge... More

This small park is the perfect place to take a break whilst walking around Westminster. It has a small cafe and toilets, as well as some play equipment for children. I love it because it has lots of benches facing the river, with great views towards the city. The monuments are also lovely.

After circling the parliament buildings during rush hour including taking pictures from the Westminister Bridge and walking along Abingdon Street, there was this nice quiet park with benches facing the Thames. Beautiful.

This beautiful little park located at the north bank of the river Thames and south of the Houses of Parliament, offers some great views along the bank and a nice opportunity for a little rest in its wonderful green surroundings.

This relatively small garden is run by the Royal Parks. It has beautiful memorials to freedom such as The Burghers of Calais by Rodin. Also there is a cafe, a childrens playground and views of the Thames.It is a lovely spot to get away from the masses of tourists.

Today we had walked a lot to see all the tourist sites Trafalgar Square, the change of guards at Buckingham Palace, Parliament, the Supreme Court, Westminster Abbey, the Thames. Then we came upon this little park with shadow in the hot sun. Nice views. But as tourists one thing we all look for is a clean toilet. We found one... More

So the interests are simple but really well done...a musical step board, a fountain that makes rivers, climbing beams, a spinning disk to make children say "whee!" and give parents nausea. Seemed like kids of any age loved it, but not so much that there were hoards of children climbing everywhere and you couldn't pull them away to continue your... More

This little park is just beside the houses of Parliament and I was surprised to find a Rodin statue "Burghers of Calais" here. It was a very hot day when we visited and my feet were sore from pounding the streets sightseeing so it was lovely to feel the grass beneath my feet.

The park is located right next to the Parliament's Victoria Tower, being a perfect location, as you can relax and admire in the same time the magnificent sourroundings. As a bonus you can find here Rodin's famous sculpture, "The Burghers of Calais" and the Buxton Memorial Fountain and also a playground for children.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
Westminster
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 highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
