Enjoy a walk through scenic St. James's Park near Buckingham Palace. If you begin at the Victoria Memorial and end there, the walk will take you maybe 60 minutes as you search for the caches and enjoy the views. The park surrounds St. James's Park Lake, a popular watering hole for hundreds of birds, including a large contingent of pelicans. This area is enjoyable for young and old alike. Numerous food vendors are located throughout the park. Posted hours are "all day all year round" so I assume it closes at dusk.This first cache will be found near the coordinates above,which will lead you off the path and onto the grass. You will be walking slightly uphill, and I don't think it will be easy to push a pram or bicycle through the grass if it has rained recently. At the top of the gradual ascent,you may be surrounded by yellow flowers,in the right season so get your camera out and watch that GPS arrow!Very soon it will point at the most obvious location.Mugglesa bound in this park so stealth is obviously required.
- A friendly squirrel looking for a handoutThe squirrels in this park are very familiar with people, and come right up to you looking for peanuts. I saw several people putting peanuts in their shirt pockets, and the squirrels would climb up their trousers and jackets to get the peanuts. Come prepared if you like squirrels.
- A tree near the cache locationIf you see this try from this angle, you are probably standing at the cache location.
