We walked through the park on our way back to our hotel. The park is beautiful with a great view of London, especially the picture on this site. The pond has several swans in residence.

I loved walking through this park! My best moment was when a squirrel climbed up & begged for food. I know its not allowed to feed wildlife, but this little guy just didn't wanna give up so we shared a nut :D

Not far from Buckingham Palace so is a bonus to find this rather nice park to stroll leisurely around.

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
