Very nice Park even though its December! can imagine its even better at summer! Many birds that are not afraid to be close! so if you're afraid of birds don't go here. Very nice to just walk through so its a must visit!

Great to stroll through from Trafalgar square right up to Buckingham Palace. Usually something on the go along the Mall, also easy to access St James Palace, and onto Green Park, Hyde Park, the Ritz etc

Nice park, great for a walk. There are a lot of funny squirls. Most enjoying is the pavillion in the middle of the park.

We walked all over London, and saw lots of city, cement and buildings. St James Park is a great area to get away from the city for a bit, and enjoy greenery, birds and squirrles.

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

Just grab an available chair and the collectors will soon arrive - sometimes they are not around so that would be some spare cash to spend on a charity
