This is a wonderful relaxing park next to the Thames and the Houses of Parliment. Wonderful views of the river and Victoria Tower. One of the most relaxing parks in London. Unfortunately due to be ruined soon by the building of a holocaust memorial and visitor centre on and below the park. Visit soon before this park is destroyed.

This is a lovely and quiet public park along the north bank of the River Thames. As its name suggests, it is next to the Victoria Tower, which is the south-western corner of the Palace of Westminster. There are several notable features in the park, such as a statue of Emmeline Pankhurst, Rodin's The Burghers of Calais and the Buxton... More

Lovely little spot close to Westminster Abbey, located by the river. Small play area, cafe serving a decent coffee. Loads of monuments in there - intricate monument to slavery and a pretty fountain too. Needs a few more benches IMO. It was really busy, but I guess lunchtime on a sunny day means lots of people had the same idea... More

A statue of Emmeline Pankhurst stands at the entrance. This park is a little oasis of green in the busy area near the Houses of Parliament but can get rather crowded with tourists.

This garden area is at the opposite end of the Palace of Westminster to the famous Elizabeth Tower/Big Ben but is a calm space just a short walk from the hustle and bustle of Parliament Square itself. Often you can spot TV cameras interviewing people for news bulletins etc but the space is also used for exercising, sunbathing (in the... More

Another spectacular city garden in London which is a very easy peaceful walk with great foliage and views. There are so many pretty well tended gardens spanning this area.

It is located between the Houses of Parliament (Palace of Westminster) and Lambeth Bridge, a nice small garden away from most tourists; there are several monuments in the park including The Burghers of Calais Monument and Buxton Memorial Fountain. There are benches throughout the garden for one to stick down and from a distance see the traffic on Westminster Bridge... More

This small park is the perfect place to take a break whilst walking around Westminster. It has a small cafe and toilets, as well as some play equipment for children. I love it because it has lots of benches facing the river, with great views towards the city. The monuments are also lovely.

After circling the parliament buildings during rush hour including taking pictures from the Westminister Bridge and walking along Abingdon Street, there was this nice quiet park with benches facing the Thames. Beautiful.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
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 highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
