St James's Park

One of the Royal Parks. Bordered by The Mall, Horse Guards and Birdcage Walk, and with fairy-tale views of Buckingham Palace and the Government Buildings along Whitehall, St James’s Park will be familiar to many from its appearances over the years on TV and in films. It is a buzzy, colourful, place, handy for events like Changing of the Guard, famous for its water birds – especially the pelicans that have resided there since being a Russian gift to Charles II in 1664. It also has extremely tame grey squirrels – and keep an eye out for owls, woodpeckers and bats.
