Victoria Embankment Gardens

Escape the hustle and bustle of city life with a trip to this scenic park in the heart of London.

Victoria Embankment Gardens is a tranquil fenced park by the River Thames. The park has several intriguing statues interspersed with floral displays, trees and grassy patches. Relish the serenity of these pretty gardens, which offer respite from the hectic pace of city life.

Stroll along the paths and take in the beauty of this peaceful setting. Sit on a bench and watch people go by in this busy part of central London. On sunny weekdays, office workers often come here on their lunch breaks. The park is equipped with ample benches. Enjoy views of the river between the trees from the east end of the park. Admire the scented white flowers of the manna ash tree in late spring.

Inspect the statue of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, a major player in the Industrial Revolution. Feminist and philosopher John Stuart Mill, women’s rights campaigner Lady Henry Somerset and Scottish poet Robert Burns are among those immortalized in sculpture here.

Look for the York Water Gate, which dates back to 1626. Although it was initially an entrance to the river, the waterline has moved by around 330 feet (100 meters) over the centuries.

In summer, attend one of the free lunchtime concerts at the bandstand. Deck chairs are provided. Relax with snacks and drinks at the café.

Take a break from sightseeing in central London and bring goods for a picnic in this green space. Nearby attractions include the National Theatre, the Southbank Centre and the London Eye.

Victoria Embankment Gardens are on the northern bank of the River Thames in central London. Ride the London Underground to Embankment station and find the gardens by the station exit. Alternatively, get the train to Charing Cross railway station nearby. The gardens are open daily between morning and evening. Closing times are earlier in winter.
