In 1532, Henry VIII bought the land of 23 hectares constituting the park, back then plunged into a swampy area. After draining the swamp, Henry VIII used the land as one of its many private hunting grounds.
In the late seventeenth century, the area was transformed into a French-style garden and later Charles II commissioned the construction of the current park.

We really thought we will have some explanation about pelicans while feeding them. Unfortunately it is only one man throwing a few dead fish into the water every few minutes.

This is a beautiful, quaint cottage that used to belong to the birdkeeper of St James' Park. From the idilliac setting it is hard to fathom you are in central London.

With a little luck you can see squirrels that will eat from your hand. You will also see that these charming little creatures hunt rats particularly expeditiously.

Qaint bit of London history in a lovley park. Tranquility in the hussle and bustle of London. Only a short walk from London Charring Cross train station.

A lovely little cottage that is used for something else.. it's a great place to get photo ops. Saw brides there getting pictures taken.

Very pretty. Park that isolates you directly from the city. Ducks, birds, rats and tame squirrels.
