St James's Park

With its royal, political and literary associations, St James's Park is at the very heart of London and covers 58 acres.
Used in films as a meeting place for spies and politicians on park benches, St James's is also home to the Mall, the setting for many ceremonial parades and events of national celebration.
With a lake harbouring ducks, geese and pelicans, facilities include a cafe, children's playground and deckchair hire.
