St James’s Park is located in London’s city centre and it is surrounded by three palaces. The first and oldest is Palace of Westminster, which is now home to the Houses of Parliament. St. James’s Palace and Buckingham Palace are also located in the park.

St James’s Park is a good place to go for a picnic as it has great facilities and live music at the bandstand during summer. This park covers 56 acres and is home to the Mall where many parades and national events take place. There are water birds, owls and pelicans living near the garden’s lake, but visitors are mainly attracted by the possibility of see the "Changing of the Guard" tradition.
