Lovely little park near the Houses of Parliament. Statue of the Burgers of Calais by Rodin. Lots of seating and over looks the mighty Thames. Tea place open in the Summer. Quite a hidden gem and place to chill away from the hustle of London

Lovely park, overlooking the river, much used by local residents and the many office workers in the area. Now under threat!

Take a moment to soak in the serenity of this quiet park so close to the tourist bustle of Westminster. The river crawls next to you and the summer green plumps in the trees above you. Sit here, check your guidebook, and re-lax. Then, when...More

This is a nice place to visit if you are already in Whitehall or have been touring the sights at Westminster (and/or are particularly keen to see the Burghers of Calais statue, as I was). More a parkland area than a flowery garden, you get...More

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,

up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
