Separated from Hyde Park by the Serpentine, a lake used by boaters and swimmers, this park is calmer and more peaceful than its neighbor, and features many attractions including a statue of Peter Pan, Albert Memorial and the Serpentine Art Gallery.

Its a nice place but I wouldn't go out of my way to return. Much nicer gardens in the surrounding parks.

So many paths and ponds and garden areas, it's just the place to wander and relax and enjoy the day. There is a food stand near the Princess of Wales playground, too, for a bite to eat.

The park is quite large - however there are benches here and there to take a pause as needed. I managed to make it to the Sunken Gardens which was certainly a highlight of wandering around and stumbling on something so calming and serene.

Walked through as a tourist and loved exploring this place. It was on a bank holiday and it was packed, everyone was out to have fun and enjoy themselves and it was so peaceful and tranquil. Nice to see the royal back garden!

Great gardens to stroll through, very relaxing. Similar to Hyde Park, very nice layout. A great wind down from the rush of London.

We’re currently enjoying a lovely morning strolling around the gardens. Very picturesque and relaxing. A great way to escape the hustle and bustle of central London.

Located next to the Kensington Palace and west end, this is a really nice and lovely green lung from the hustle and bustle of the city. Come here for an early morning walk and you can see plenty of people jogging and walking their dogs....More
