The gardens are beautiful. Lots of grass to lay on, children's playground and this very ornate but beautiful memorial. A great resting spot. Ice cream is available next to the playground. Great diversion if you're traveling with children.

Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
