This wonderful park is a spiritual place, and far and away the best park in the heart of London.

What makes it Great?

Why it doesn't work?

This wonderful park has always been a respite from the busy city around it. It sits between Buckingham Palace and Whitehall with great views to either side. It is spiritual place, and far and away the best park in the heart of London. Its only real rival is Queen MaryÍs Gardens, which has many similar qualities, but is buried deep in RegentÍs Park.
