A Run Through St. James and Green Park

Rather than run my regular trail along South Bank, I decided I try a different route this morning; crossing the river past Big Ben and into St. James Park (pdf). The park is quite nice, lots of squirrels & swans around the pond with House Guards Parade and Buckingham Palace on each end. After passing by Queen Victoria Memorial and Canada Gate, I ran through Green Park (pdf) which is quite large open space. St. James Park and Green Park are just two of the eight Royal Parks in London.
