Green Park is the smallest of the Royal Parks of London. Tucked between Buckingham Palace and the separated by The Mall with St James Park, this is a beautiful green space which transforms itself in autumn.
Green Park was once the burial ground of lepers who were living and treated in nearby St James Hospital. Today its full of leafy boulevards and benches and a relaxing place for families.
In summers you will find lots of reclining chairs, you can rent them too, and families having picnics. In autumn lots of photographers trying to capture the reds and oranges. In any season this is a lovely park.
How to reach Green Park?
Take a tube (Jubilee, Piccadilly, Victoria lines) and alight at Green Park. Exit from the Buckingham Palace exit and you will step onto the Green Park.
On one side of the park is Piccadilly, a long street that takes you to Piccadilly square, The Ritz right outside the Underground exit, and if you walk further in the park, you will end up in The Mall and can see Buckingham Palace right in front of you. Towards the east is the Wellington Arch.
A pretty unassuming park, at a very central and strategic location, you can access all of the Top sights from here and rest when you are tired of walking.
Further from here? Try exploring the neighbourhoods of St James, Mayfair and Piccadilly. Cross the Mall and click pictures at Buckingham Palace gate and Victoria Memorial. You can also head to St James Park and sit around the lake and watch the ducks. You can never be short of options from this centrally located Park.
