St. James's Park
St. James's Park and Green Park lie next to each other to the north and east of Buckingham Palace. The view from the bridge towards Whitehall is particularly pleasing and the lake is famous for its birds, especially the black swans and pelicans. With its well-groomed flowerbeds and summer concerts, the park remains a big favorite with Londoners and tourists alike. Office workers swarm into St James's on summer days to eat their lunch and enjoy the sunshine. Henry VIII acquired the land in the early 16th Century at the same time as Hyde Park.
Built on the grounds of St.James Leper Hospital, this park was transformed by John Nash into the magnificent landscape that we see today. The lake was drained this year for clearing the sediment, and has become home to so many ducks and geese, not forgetting the four pelicans. The real stars are the squirrels that are really tame and will feed from your hands if you have some peanuts. Never try to touch them though because the young ones may bite. The bridge over the lake has great views of Horse guards parade and Buckingham Palace. If you are to visit the Palace, make sure that you walk through this park on your way. The kids will have a great time here.
Absolute beauty everywhere you look! This is the best walk in London! You would never know that you are in the middle of such a huge city while walking through the park. Great views of Buckingham surrounded by nature. Great photo opts here! Don't forget to folow the Princess Diana walk along some of the way. This park will lead you by the Palace and into other great parks that you don't want the miss.
