Just great to have this park in the middle of the city - so relaxing - even in the winter, but absolutely wonderful in spring and summer - very well maintained - always a joy to spend time there!

This park is so beautiful, especially in the spring with the flowers. Look for The Diana,Princess of Wales Memorial Walk - a 7-mile circular walking trail in London dedicated to the memory of Diana, Princess of Wales. From Kensington Gardens, Green Park, Hyde Park and St. James's Park in a figure-eight pattern, passing five sites that are associated with her life: Kensington Palace, Spencer House, Buckingham Palace, St. James's Palace, and Clarence House. Walk AROUND, not THRU, the park at night, though.

This park is in the heart of London and very scenic to walk around, relax, have something to eat or simply take lovely photos. If you stand on the bridge with your back to the Palace, the view is like something from a fairytale. You'll see loads of squirrels hoarding their nuts. Beware of the swans, they look beautiful but get too close and they'll bit. You can cut through this park to get to many places, Trafalgar Square leading to the West End for instance.

Such a great park, so pretty and full of wildlife. See the ducks on the pond, squirrels so tame they will eat nuts out of your hand and there is a cute kids playground with sandpit. Sometimes you can hear a brass band on a Sunday and there is deck chair hire, a cafe and ice-cream stand. I love this park it's gorgeous
