  Green Park
by Dabs

At some point during your visit to London you will probably be in or around Green Park which is close to Buckingham Palace. It was originally a swampy burial ground for lepers, then a hunting ground for Charles II, now a refuge amidst the bustle of the city.

I wandered through Green Park on one of the London Walks (Strictly Confidential) and snapped this pic while waiting for the tour to start. Apparently you have to pay for the chairs should you want to sit in one which explains why so many of them are empty :-)
