St. James's Park


St. James's Park in London is blessed with both natural beauty and historical significance. At almost sixty acres, the park is centrally located and surrounded by iconic landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament. The size and location of St. James's Park make it a great destination for both locals and visitors alike.

The rolling lawns of the park are beautifully kept and you can set up a picnic or play football with ease. The many pathways adorning the park invite you to explore its surroundings or take a leisurely stroll to admire its waterside views. There is the picturesque Duck Island and its vast array of birds, from swans to geese, while the abundant trees make it perfect for wildlife spotting.

St. James's Park is also steeped in history. It was once the main duck hunting ground of Henry VIII and one of the oldest Royal Parks, maintained by the Royal family ever since. Dating back to the 16th century it counts Alexandra Gardens and the Column of Victory amongst its most recognisable features. In the 19th century the park was completely landscaped with ornamental flowers, shrubs and trees, and the Long Water was formed, providing a habitat for the majestic pelicans who still reside here today.
