Visited today, a great space with the noise and intensity of central London just feet away. Managed to get a seat on a bench to enjoy 30 minutes of relaxation. Worth a visit if your in the area and want to pause for a bit.

Beautiful and interesting area. Famous buildings, statues and fabulous gardens. Exotic planting and immaculately maintained. Peace in the bedlam of Westminster.
