Have visited the gardens twice when in London to visit Kensington Palace and Kensington Garden Hotel. Set at the end of Kensington High Street, surrounding Kensington Palace, the gardens provide a lovely park area.

Walking the grounds is just beautiful. Very peaceful. If you are the Kensington Palace, then you have to take the time to walk through the gardens. Take your time and take it all in.

Go inside for the current exhibit. We were able to see the Royal Dresses on displayed and our teen girls LOVED it. Stay for tea if you can- makes for a wonderful mother-daughter time to remember.

On a dreary London afternoon, Kensington Gardens was the perfect place to walk through. From visiting Kensington Palace to watching the kids feed the birds to dogs running and playing, it was a great place. There are so many things to see and at every turn, there was something else (Princess Diana park, Peter Pan Statue and more). A great... More

Kensington Gardens offer a welcome and sometimes a much needed break from the hustle and bustle of the city. The manicured gardens are breathtaking! We thoroughly enjoyed everything this lovely park has to offer! We will be back at this oasis on our next trip to London!

So glad we took time to walk through the gardens. Beautifully maintained. It was such a peaceful evening. Very glad we found the Peter Pan statue.

The Kengsinton Gardens are one of the most prettiest gardens in the world. They are beautiful in each season (I went there in the winter). It's full of the local fauna, like squirrels, owls and other animals of England. It's definitely worth to visit.

Beautiful gardens, and a visit to the palace is worth it! The pond is gorgeous and full of birds. The birds are definitely used to having humans around, they will come right up to you and they are everywhere! Great photo opportunities. If you are looking for a quiet park you may want to try elsewhere though...there are a lot... More

This park is full of green and flowers! A really nice place to take a walk and take some rest from the busy London. It's another must see and I only wish I had something this sort at the backyard of my house...
