Penned in at two corners by St James's Park and Hyde Park, it was enclosed by Charles II in 1668 as a hunting ground before opening to the public in 1826. Today, the mini park plays host to lunching commuters and tourists in almost equal measure; the latter often found to be lounging on Green Park's alluring stripy deckchairs before being stung with a small fee by the roaming ticket man. There's not a great deal to see or do in the park (other than a small kiosk) but it's the central locaton of Green Park, rather than attractions, that make it so appealing.
