I was prepared to be underwhelmed by Holland Park but instead I came away very impressed. The area closest to Holland Park tube station is semi-wild woodland. The centre of the park includes the Kyoto Gardens which is a ‘place for contemplation’ and being in the heart of Kensington most of the visitors seem to adhere to this request. The peacocks seem very confident as a result The gardens around the ruins of Holland House are formal and impressive. There is tennis courts further south, today two very impressive women were hitting the ball across the net with power, taking the ball just after the bounce. Seems that residents are not only graced by having the money to live in such an upmarket area but they can also play sport well. As for dog walkers, not a Staffordshire dog in sight, instead King Charles Spaniels were the most common breed. On the edge of the park is the Design Museum which is also worth a visit.

If you're in the area this park has some beautiful scenery and offers an intense running course. There is also a free weights area near the football pitch.

If this is not the best park in the country I don't know where is. Walk through from the north and there is a wild area, with some woods and nestling in the middle is the fabulous Kyoto Japanese garden. See the fish, peacocks and greedy squirrels. Further south you come to the formal area, with a café, terrace gardens, rose gardens, and the remains of the old house, now a Youth Hostel. Down past the kids play area are the pitches for organised sport. Look out for the wonderful sculptures, my favourite being the sundial with the tortoises.There are a lot of attractions in London and this will probably not be top of the list, but if you are in the area, perhaps at the Design Museum or Lord Leighton's House, make the short detour. You won't regret it.

After a few days of traipsing round London, we wanted to escape the hustle and bustle and were so glad we visited Holland Park. It's a little gem located close to Kensington High street in West London. They have a Japanese style Kyoto gardens in the grounds which host a waterfall and koi carp. You can sit and relax totally in these gardens whilst watching the free roaming peacocks and squirrels. It was so stress free visiting these stunning gardens and is in a beautiful part of London. In other parts of the grounds there are playgrounds, a cafe, etc. The only reason we're not giving this 5 stars is because the toilets were disgusting and there's no excuse for that being in such a affluent part of London. After visiting the park it is well worth going up Kensington high street to see how the other half live and you might get to see the Beckhams in one of the post restaurants if you're lucky
