Green Park, London

4.3
#15 of 159 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.

  • What I liked in the Park is that it plants, shrubs fenced from the bustling Piccadilly Circus. It is green, is facing the bench. Beautiful old trees hide you from the urban bustle. And near Buckingham Palace.

  • It is as if you are in town, passage to arrive at Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly subway line blue and have come!

  • Nice, clean, with planting. Just as we passed were carrying dei platani, choosing one by one the branches to be truncated. Good.

  • One of the best Royal Parks to take a stroll through, which also has plenty of room for picnics. A wide open tree-free area is the perfect place to enjoy the sun, that also had deckchairs available for hire. It is, however, used as a thoroughfare between Green Park station and Buckingham Palace, so can get very busy.
  • Very nice park, nice little amble across and plenty of winding paths to follow. Nice to see a lot of green in London. Really special memorial at one side as well, very respectful
  • Lovely open space, lots going on. Nice friendly atmosphere, great for kids and adults alike. Very clean toilets, you deserve congratulations for that alone, well done!
  • One of best park near Buckingham palace... A better place to have some relax during sunny days at central london
  • Beautiful, busy, the look of London. And a gorgeous little food market outside the church on the square. Park is a treat. Especially in summer. Feel safe enough to lay read and drink a cuppa. Lots of fancy shops
