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.

Adjacent to Hyde Park at the western end, the Kensington Gardens and palace are absolutely stunning most times of the year. A haven from the busy Lindon streets.

In the middle of a busy city it is lovely to find this peaceful haven, the Italian style gardens are well worth visiting

Lovely space in the city and so many landmarks to see in the distance as you walk around the park. Easy to get to from tube or bus and then you can always pop into Harrods after!

A very lovely place to walk around. The new white garden that they created in honor of the late Princess Diana is stunning. So glad we strolled around and took our time to take it all in.
