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...

We found this garden/park to be beautiful and interesting. We strolled through it eating our lunch. The children were riding the carousel and the kiddy cars - and - the adults all seemed to have ice cream. BE SURE to wander over to The Albert Memorial because it is stunning and notice the swans on the pond. We enjoyed the... More

Stunning gardens with a great array of flowers in full bloom, gentle walks in the grounds of the palace. Perfect after a night on the tiles!

This was just one of the different gardens we went through. You need to take your time just to be able to meander and take in the sights. We took our path down towards Dianas memorial. It was different, not what i was expecting. We also saw the Italian gardens and wandered alongside the Serpentine. We came across a very... More

Perfect place to stroll round and see the various fountains, statues etc etc. Plenty of benches to rest a while. Dip your toes in the Diana Memorial. Great for children. Uncrowded and very spacious with plenty of room for all. Toilet (free) and a cafe. Go on the lake with a boat. Peace & quiet in a busy city.
