A good sized green space with wonderful old trees leading to or from Buckingham Palace. Also a great way to miss the traffic going from Piccadilly to Hyde Park, or the reverse. A nice break from the traffic noise.

Another of the belt of green places that make it possible (almost) to walk from Waterloo to Paddington stations without being on a street all the time. Its big, open - a nice approach to the Palace, and a way of getting to the Mall (or Pall Mall) without breathing in diesel fumes. St James Park is just across the... More

This is a lovely little stroll heading towards Buckingham palace from Piccadilly, there's nothing spectacular about it but worth doing to take in all the royal parks. Interesting little fact is that there are literally thousands of bodies buried here so if a zombie apocalypse breaks out the avoid!!!

To this route from the Park Lane Hilton to Buckingham Palace and Westminster. Despite a cold winters day it's still a lovely walk and well worth a look round.

A nice place to walk through on the way from the tube station to Buckingham Palace. As you exut to the roundabout in front of the palace, there are signs describing the sites there, as well as a guide to the uniforms of the guards and horsemen and musical marchers.

Hope that does not sound creepy lol. As you leave the Underground Tube train station to visit Buckingham Palace at Green Park you exit into this serene park. You have to walk through it to get to the palace. Great place to people watch: Vendors are selling beverages and snack food in little kiosks. Mothers are running with strollers. A... More

It is smaller than a lot of others but has an understated beauty when walking through. The park has lots of room to sit, squirrels and nearby transport. Buckingham Palace is also at the end with Mayfair on the other end.

I used to walk on this park when I was a kid and after more than a two decades, on Sept 2016 I visited this park again. It is a nice park where you can take a stroll in the afternoon with your family or your pet.

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
