Exceeded my expectations, even more than Hyde Park. So beautiful to be able to live seeing from your window this beautiful well kept park and the Thames river. Just outside Embankment tuve entrance. Peaceful and quaint. Food available on the premises.

This is a small park sandwiched between the Victoria Embankment and the back of the plush hotels on the Strand. It is well kept, with nice gardens and a few statues. Handy for a peaceful break if you've been sightseeing in the area or walking...More

On the embankment of the Thames as the name suggests. This is a well presented and well looked after garden that is adjourned with a number of statues. If by the river it is well worth a visit - and in winter it is lovely....More

Hi,I'm really not sure. It would depend on the mobility challenges. (Just a thought - You could visit the nearby St James Park which is much bigger and has plenty of easy access tarmac paths). Hope this helps.
