LONDON – ST.JAMES’S PARK


One of the oldest royal parks in London, a central park that  lies in front of  the Buckingham Palace, neighbouring the Green Park and Horse Guards building on the other side, along the grand royal route – The Mall  leading through the eastern  triumphal arch  to the Buckingham Palace.

 Originally the land was bought by Henry VIII and then remodelled by french landscaper Andree Mollet  in a very geometric style, then redesigned several times and the Park we know today has been designed in a romantic style by famous english architect and landscaper John Nash.

The most distinctive features of the park are  irregularly shaped lake and two islands creating the perfect envinroment for large numer of birds.

Another interesting feature is the bridge crossing the lake in the middle and providing the great views at the Buckingham Palace and the main building of the Foreign and Commonwealth Offices. 

The closest tube stations are  Victoria, Westminster and St. James’s Park
