Excellent park, didn’t expect any less. Lovely to see the dog walkers, joggers and bicycle riders. A bit cool February day but enjoyably

A walk through the park makes you forget you are in central London plus the view of Buckingham palace across the lake has to be seen

What a gorgeous park with green areas, water features, beautiful footpaths and very close to lots of central London features, like 10 Downing Street, Buckingham Palace and so forth. Just nice to stroll, see the birds and people watching. Fun!

start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
