St James Park: exploring the royal parks

Mr Malik was off to see a friend get ordained, so we made it a family excursion! The ordination (when a vicar formally becomes a reverend in a special service) was in westminster, near st James park, so I thought the boys and I would head there. I told minimalik we were off to see the pelicans!

I was pleasantly surprised by how lovely the park was. The water was all gated off, with loads of wildlife to see, and the pelicans! The park looked really nice, with quite a diversity of equipment, but we didn’t have time to stay and play.

Lots of green grass for picnics and games. There are a few little shacks selling overpriced ice cream and the usual.

Its very close to Buckingham palace (when we were there the flag was up!) and not too far from hyde and Kensington parks.
