Green Park, London

4.3
#15 of 100 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. Our London vacation builder makes visiting Green Park and other London attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

    I love London for its parks but I think Green Park is one of the loveliest parks in London. Early morning walks are the best times as there is hardly anyone there but you will catch the early commuter...  more »

    This park is small and not the most beautiful of the Royal Parks but it has a couple of memorials to see (especially the Bomber Command memorial) and plenty of benches to sit on. The centre is more be...  more »

    Located in the city center it's hard to believe when you see this green space where squirrels and other geese reign supreme. Beautiful design in the center of the city for a wonderful ride as close to the animals.

  • While on route to the Tate Britain decided to to spend some time in the park. An hour went by in the blink of an eye just sat in the sun watching the world go by. You can hire deck chairs if that's your thing but due to it been so warm the grass was bone dry.
  • Just like I pictured it. Even though I was a cold Southern Californian, everyone was out jogging and fitness training and perambulating with their strollers and talking with co-workers as they went to or came from the pub. Felt really nice and urban in the good way.
  • Really nice park (on a sunny day) there are deck chairs for hire and a play area for the kids. Stones throw from the palace and the subway network. If you are lucky you might get to meet a police horse
  • Awesome place to chill at when days are warm and sunny. Lots of places under the shadow as well as sunny ones. You can also borrow chairs. It also has a direct access to Buckingham Palace which is nice to see.
  • What's not to like about a park? Bring your own food and drink, stretch and fall asleep..exchange pleasantries with total strangers..hire a bike on the way out, and hit another local park..they're great places!

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
