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.

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

  • Beautiful park, after taking snaps at Buckingham place this is the best place to relax. They have chairs on rent so you can relax. Ice cream should be quite good.
  • Just love this park. Was there at night on the Santander bikes. Was very enjoyable. And you feel like you can breath better with all the trees and grass around which is a nice change from the highly congested London City.
  • Loved the smell of trees and nature even though it's centre of London. Fresh air made me feel so good and refresh my mind:)
  • Beautiful gardens. Fabulous walks. Great for families and picnics. Fantastic trees.
  • Nice lawn with huge trees. Easy chair for rent at £1.60 per hour. Public convenience is at the Green Park tube station
