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.

Went to the Palace and then spent some time in the gardens. Although they were not in bloom at this time, I could visualize just how they might look in the spring. Saw the area where Harry and Meaghan came out to announce their engagement.

Kensington Gardens are beautiful. I think the English have a unique way with their gardens. And these are absolutely lovely. It was great taking a walk and just enjoying our time in this beautiful place.

Just as you get into the park from Lancaster Tube station, you’ll see the Italian garden which is gorgeous! Walk towards Hyde Park’s direction and you’ll be at the big pond with lots of ducks, birds and swans! I’ve never seen so many swans in...More
