We are delighted to have the support of Artemis as our official conservation partner for St James’s Park.
St James's Park is at the heart of ceremonial London. It's the setting for spectacular pageants, like Trooping the Colour, and is surrounded by some of the country's most famous landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Clarence House, St James's Palace and Westminster. Despite having over 16 million annual visitors, St James's Park is a tranquil place. The lake, flower beds, shrubberies and trees provide a unique opportunity for visitors to rest away from the hustle and bustle of London’s centre.
Our conservation partnership with Artemis helps us to preserve the biodiversity of the West Island which provides sanctuary and habitat to the many bird and duck species resident there, from the black swans to the mallards. It's also enabled us to plant new wildflower meadows and reedbeds that support the lake’s ecology and protect surrounding wildlife.
