The very first part of Hyde Park I discovered were the Italian Gardens, and, long before I even knew precisely where I was, I was enchanted. The grounds were clean, calm, and full of nature. The plethora of seating options and even a few food trucks made my experience even better. The Italian Gardens are non-negotiable when you’re here!

A highlight of visiting Kensington Gardens. Beautiful water garden with fountains and sculptures located near Lancaster Gate. Very peaceful. Nice place to sit and unwind. You can also enjoy a 99 Flake ice cream cone which were being sold here this summer.

Beautiful and tranquil part to Kensington Gardens. Hoped to see some fish, but no sign of these on our visit. Just air bubbles. Lovely lilies, good seating around the edge. A good place to come to be at peace.

I wanted to see these gardens since I was not able to the last time I came to London. In this park, you can see the Queen's Tomb, the Peter Pan Statue, and the Italian-style garden. It is apart of Hyde Park near Kensington Palace. They were restored in 2011 and believed to be a gift to Queen Victoria from Prince Albert. FYI: Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's initials on one of the walls of the Pump House, at the north of the gardens.

Spent time walking around Hyde park and stumbled across the Italian Gardens. Not the best time to see it in Feb but was impressed with the layout, fountains and story behind it. Visit if you have time 👍

The Italian Gardens is a small garden located in the much larger Kensington Gardens. The Italian Gardens can be found at the entrance near the Lancaster Gate underground station, at the northern end of the park. It's a lovely garden modelled as the name implies on the Italian Renaissance gardens, themselves inspired by neo-classical designs. Some of the really nice features of the gardens include hey feature central rosettes carved in marble, the white marble Fountain, and the collection of stone statues and urns dotted around the walls.

There's also a monument to Edward Jenner in the gardens. He's the man who created the first ever vaccine, which was for smallpox. The man laid the foundations of modern vaccination and the saving of millions of lives.

A nice place to wander, especially if already in Kensington Gardens or even Hyde Park.

A truly lovely find, the autumn colours providing a backdrop for these formal pools and fountains, punctuated with equally formal planting beds against a light coloured stone. The formal colonnade with central water feature appears as if the source of Long water. Built for Royal Lovers (Victoria and Albert), wonderful start to our day of sightseeing on the day of our Silver Anniversary. A beautiful formal garden close to the landscaped informality of Kensington Gardens, an oasis surprisingly close to the Bayswater Rd.

The Italian Gardens are have amazing fountains, which even has fish in them and places to sit and admire the view. The Gardens are inside the Lancaster Gate entrance to Kensington Gardens.

The Italian Gardens are a beautiful part of Kensington Gardens and include a pond, several fountains and enough flowers to satisfy any flowers fan.
The pond and the reflection of the sky make for a great photo-op here.

My Sister and I came to stay in London for four days staying opposite Hyde Park! We visited the gardens several times and also sat and had a great coffee there! Stunning place!
