Near Buckingham palace. Very clean and lot of greenery. In March there are already flowers blooming. We saw squirrels and ducks, amazing. They just walk right up to you and eat from your hand. :)

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
