St. James' Park
"...they came back in the middle of St. James' Park on a fine morning..." (pg. 7)
St. James' Park is a famous park in London surrounded by three palaces-- Buckingham Palace, Westminster (which now holds the Houses of Parliament) and St. James' Palace. Clarissa says memories of Peter often come back to her while she is walking through St. James' Park. She argues with herself about how Peter never noticed the beautiful things of the park, the natural things and sees this as a negative point in his character. In contrast, Clarissa notices many minute things about everyday life that she sees as important and beautiful. This adds the contrast between Clarissa and Peter.
