A beautiful park to while away an afternoon; calm and quiet - but beware of the pigeons! The world (and you) is their toilet!

This park blows me away. It’s so beautifully maintained, picturesque and you cannot beat just watching the wildlife! The squirrels are particularly thrilling. Absolutely loved sitting on a deck chair with some Nutella waffles. What a treat. Would come here every day if I could.

St James' Park is arguably London's finest park - in the heart of Mayfair, 10 mins from Victoria Station and Trafalgar Square, yet an oasis of calm once you are in the park. It has a beautiful lake with a picturesque bridge, offering unique views...More

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

Just grab an available chair and the collectors will soon arrive - sometimes they are not around so that would be some spare cash to spend on a charity
