Green Park, London

(850+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
Spanning over 16 hectares (40 acres) of mature trees and grassland next to Buckingham Palace, Green Park is a peaceful oasis in the heart of London. Enjoy a pleasant stroll or relax on a picnic blanket and watch the world go by. Unusual for a Royal Park, Green Park has no formal flowerbeds. One possible explanation is that Catherine of Braganza, wife to King Charles II, discovered that Charles had picked flowers in the park for another woman. Scorned, the Queen ordered that every single flower in the park should be pulled up and no more planted. In recent years, the park has become a place to remember those who served in the two World Wars, with several monuments situated around the park. Our London vacation builder makes visiting Green Park and other London attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Walked through green park on the way to see other sites. Upon exiting the tube station i was surprised how large it was. Lots of space, places go get a drink, joggers, excercise classes and piles of d...  more »

  • Time just went in early spring blooms of white and yellow daffodils in the Park, very clean. If weather is good because it's pretty big, bring your lunch and picnic

  • If you want to spend a quiet couple of hours and also slip in a quick visit to Buckingham, go here. A variety of birds and animals abound and they are not afraid so they play around the visitor's feet. The park itself is also quite large and covering it will take at least 30 minutes at a brisk pace. What I'd do is grab a basket and make it a picnic.
  • Though Green Park is one of London's classic natural open spaces, and is in easy reach of Buckingham Palace and Mayfair, it can become crowded at the height of summer. But, as a nocturnal short cut from, say, the West End to Victoria Station, its calm and dark mystery make for an intriguing walk home.
  • Lovely park, especially if you want some grassy space for games and somewhere with slightly fewer people than St James. St James' is still more picturesque though!
  • Great open place in central London, off green park and piccadily, Buckingham Palace is just across the Park, then there is St.James Park ,this stretches from the Palace on one side ,THE MALL ON THE OTHER - leads on to HorseGuards Parade -then the back of NO.10 Downing St. PM'''s residents, no public access here ,though 25 yrs.ago you could walk back and forth ! Now for security reasons you can't. The whole area around Green Park can lead you to so many different places ! You'd need at least 10-15 days and some comfortable walking shoes to cover most of the area.
  • Lovely park with a big open green space where they put out chairs to sit on for over $1 pound an hour. You will see plenty of people just sitting on the grass having a meal. You can get free water out of the fountain on the north east corner.
