Situated west of Kensington Gardens, this city park is particularly attractive in the spring when tulips are in full bloom, and in summer when performances are staged at the open-air theater.

Right in the heart of Kensington is this wonderful park, just the place to get away from everything and watch the world go by. The Japanese garden is a wonderful space for watching the Koi Carp, the moorhens or even the squirrels. There's a coffee shop, the restored remains of Holland House and plenty of benches for an al fresco... More

I love Holland Park as a whole. It is in the heart of Kensington, and takes over a good area. It has many entrances and has a lot of facilities. Facilities available are: a coffee shop, children's playgrounds, a lovely restaurant, a gallery, an opera house, a hostle, a Japanese garden, car parking, toilets, tennis courts, even a police station....

We swore off public transportation one day and hung out in Holland Park and Kensington Gardens one day, and Hyde Park another. Find a sandwich shop with hand-made crusty bread sandwiches, buy some beer or wine at a grocery store, and smell the roses!

The Japanese garden is a great place to get lost in tranquility and forget the world. If you like animals, make sure to take some peanuts to feed the squirrels. They have... More

Holland Park is a lovely park just off kensington high street. It has a playground for young children and another one for older children. You can play tennis and football there too. It has a lovely Japanese garden which is well worth a visit. Really like that park.
