It is really beautiful park, but can get easy overcrowded. Avoid it when is sunny and is bank holiday otherwise you will be not able to enjoy it fully.

Strolling through this Park is very therapeutic! Identifying the varieties of different wildfowl is helped by reading the display boards. Of particularly spectacular are the Pelicans - if you're visiting between 2.30 & 3.00pm you might see them being fed near the Duck Island Cottage.

We loved our time in St. Jame's Park. It has a very diverse landscape, with diversity in plants and birds. You can also eat/drink at places on the Park's grounds. Big body of water belongs to the park too.

This park is beautiful and is full of people enjoying a stroll along the river. There are photo opportunity places everywhere. An ice cream booth is in the center of the park (maybe there are 2 but I can't remember).

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

Only recently they put Tulips in the park. Now is the season.
I'm thinking of visiting in November. Is it worth stopping by the park in autumn?
