St James' Park is arguably London's finest park - in the heart of Mayfair, 10 mins from Victoria Station and Trafalgar Square, yet an oasis of calm once you are in the park. It has a beautiful lake with a picturesque bridge, offering unique views...More

Hire a bicycle and cycle around this park, also Buckingham palace, the parliament, there are cycle ways and it is pretty safe and fun. You will enjoy it from a total different angle.

Such a fabulous stroll from Horseguards through to Buckingham Palace, so many species of ducks and geese, pelicans too. A beautiful escape, surrounded by nature before heading to the hustle and bustle of Knightsbridge 💋

I love walking through St James's Park at any time of the year and think the view of Buckingham Palace from one of the bridges over the lake is one of my favourites in the whole of London. Plenty of cafes and toilets too!

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
