We love this park! For a concrete jungle like London, the green areas provide much in the way of enjoyment and relaxation. They keep one sane!

This is a particularly nice park, with lovely greenery, close to Buckingham Palace, Pall Mall, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square etc. so is a good place to have a lunch break and get off your tired feet after a weary day.

As an extra bonus... you get to see the Queen's swans swim gracefully by... just DON'T catch them or eat them... you may very well be sent to London Tower, and we all know what goes on (or off!) there! ;)
