Views of London from the Royal Observatory Greenwich – an observatory situated on a hill in Greenwich Park, overlooking the River Thames. It played a major role in the history of astronomy and navigation, and is best known for the fact that the prime meridian passes through it, and thereby gave its name to Greenwich Mean Time. There is actually a physical line where one can stand on both the East and West of the prime meridian.
St James’s Park is one of London’s eight Royal Parks and covers an area of nearly 57 acres. St James’s Park includes The Mall and Horse Guards Parade, and is surrounded by landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Whitehall.
Here is a different, softer view of Buckingham Palace from St. James Park.
