Bird-spotting and Scenic Walks at St James’s Park

St James’s Park boasts one of the dreamiest outlooks in all London. Framed by The Mall and Birdcage Walk, the park is punctuated by a long lake, with stately views to the west of Buckingham Palace and the magnificent Horse Guards and London Eye to the east, framed by a mass of ancient oak trees.

Ideal for all ages – children will love spotting the resident waterfowl and pelicans who peck around the birdkeeper’s quaint Duck Cottage. The park is also handily placed for big-name draws like Apsley House, The Queen’s Gallery, Churchill War Rooms, National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery.

A great park for scenic nature walks at any time of year, but at it’s most magical during autumn and winter seasons. In warmer months, why not enjoy a picnic with best-of-British goodies freshly prepared and available on request at many of our hotels nearby.
