This green municipal park is located in the heart of London and is overgrown by leafy, old, turf trees. It would not be a typical English park without its well-kept lawns that are inviting all passersby for a bit of relaxation or even a picnic. You would never guess that this area was once a swampy burial ground.
There are also interesting sights to be seen there - for example, the Bomber Command Memorial and Canada Gate Memorial.
This oasis of peace also played a part in English history. In 1840, Edward Oxford attempted to assassinate Queen Victoria here.
Some roads may be closed during the changing of the guards. See the official website for more information.
