Green Park, London

4.4
#15 of 160 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.

  • Green Park is not as big as other city parks, however is nice and relaxing. The ideal place to await the changing of the guard, sitting on a bench, watching the comings and goings of Londoners, marveling at Buckingham Palace.

  • It is lots of foliage is a big tree people soak up the Sun and the pleasant location. At times near the Palace and out stalls with various aspects.

  • At any time of the year there to explore it. It is very large and have to walk it. Quiet and safe. Never at night.

  • 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

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.
