Love this park… great "I'm in London!" views, full of ducks, geese, & even enormous pelicans which are fed daily at 2:30 - what a sight. Try to snag a seat at the family friendly café Inn the Park for their award winning food.
- 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 (pictured) is particularly pleasing and the lake is famous for its waterfowl, especially the black swans. With its well-groomed flowerbeds and summer concerts, the park remains a big favourite with Londoners and tourists alike. Office workers swarm into St James's on fine 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.
