St. James’s Park
The oldest of London’s eight Royal Parks, St. James's Park is steeped in history, surrounded by the Houses of Parliament, St. James’s Palace and Buckingham Palace.
The Park is also a beautiful green space in the centre of the city and visitors can stroll by the lakeside, watch ducks and listen to the birds, offering delight and relaxation to all.
As the charity for the Royal Parks, we exist to enhance, protect and preserve St. James's Park and all of London's amazing Royal Parks, for future generations.
With your fantastic support, we’re able to reach out to make St. James’s Park part of more people’s lives by raising funds for a wide variety of projects from wildlife conservation and landscape restoration, to community sport, education and art.

Pelicans in the Park
For 300 years, over 40 pelicans have made St James's Park lake their home and this year, thanks to the support of the Tiffany and Co. Foundation, three new Great White Pelicans join the colony.
Designed by artists and school children alike, these amazing deckchairs have brought art into the Parks and raised thousands of pounds to support the Royal Parks, thanks to generous support from Bloomberg.
