We went up to London on a Saturday afternoon and decided to walk through St James Park as it was such a nice day. The park is well maintained and beautiful to walk through especially on a summers afternoon, thoroughly recommend it!

One of London's most beautiful parks, near the Palace. The park is clean and there is space for the children to play and enjoy nature.

We visited just before sunset and I can can say that it is the best time of day, since I've been here before at different times. Just sit and enjoy the nature.

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

Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

Just grab an available chair and the collectors will soon arrive - sometimes they are not around so that would be some spare cash to spend on a charity
