- by CityWest Residential
St James’s Park is a beautiful 57 acre park in the City of Westminster, an attraction enjoyed by over 5.5 millions visitors every year. It is the oldest of the capital’s eight Royal Parks and has many ties to history, politics, literacy and the royal family. The park’s lake, its well maintained grounds and tranquility amid the surrounding hubbub, attract people to the grounds throughout the year. The views from the park are impressive and include Buckingham Palace, Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall Court, the London Eye, the Shell Tower and The Shard.
St James’s Park is home to a variety of wildlife, including water birds, owls, woodpeckers, bats and its most famous resident pelicans, first introduced to the park in 1664. These sociable birds are fed fresh fish daily at 2.30pm.
Children of all ages will enjoy the large playground and parents can relax in the deck chairs provided between April and September. Visitors can see the Changing of the Guard daily during the summer months and stop for bite to eat in the park’s café where breakfast, lunch and dinner is served, along with snacks for those on the run.
It’s an ideal spot for meeting up with friends and families in the community. In the Summer months you’ll find locals getting together for picnics, to play games or for events and concerts.
