Green Park, London

4.4
#13 of 184 in Parks in London
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.

  • Lovely park between piccadilly and the Palace. So much to see with the Canada gates being a highlight.  more »
  • We walked from Piccadili, just reached Buckingham Palace, as it rained and me and the people rushed through this park to the subway station, managed to notice that the park is well-groomed, there were paid chairs for the convenience of visitors.

  • With a lot of green and a peculiar story of jealousy (see Google). It gives access to the Royal Palace for changing guards and is full of people practicing sports. Kinda cool. Uncompiled access with station inside the park.

  • This place is so relaxing; clean and can even bring goods for having picnic..most people here are the following: a. students b. family c. partners d.travelers This place is safe because there is police on duty on the entrance and exit.. The only problem in this place is the comfort room ( toilet)... Hoping for improvement! thanks!
  • One of London's great parks, lovely on a summer's day just to chill out. Good to see the green parakeets making a comeback and they'll happily eat from your hand if you're baring fresh fruit. Well worth a visit.
  • Beautiful park, with some gorgeous houses on the east side. No cafes to speak of but more than enough options to buy food nearby. Lovely spot for a picnic.
  • Nice, serene and utterly enjoyable on a crispy cool summer day! Note the lawn chairs are for hire but only for a token amount. Lots of people sat on the green grass which looked so lush and well kept. And there are free park benches as well. Sat down to enjoy my snack and some rays of the sun (remember to take your sunshades!). Quite as expansive as they come in this part of the world! Even though there were a lots of visitors, the park wasn't crowded at all because of it's sheer size.
  • Beautiful place, lots of space for people to eat, talk, exercise. Very ranged group of people. Some where doing yoga, some chatting, others having picnics. Has plenty of bins and is very clean. Also has a beautiful fountain in the middle.
