One of my two favourite places in London.
Kensington gardens are a perfect place for a stroll, a cup of tea by the lake or sitting on a bench reading a book. There are a lot of statues around the park the most important one is definitely Pete-Pen.
Don't miss out on this beautiful park.

Aside from the tree colour there are some highlights not to miss. We headed for the Albert Memorial, the Peter Pan fountain, the Round Pond and of course Kensington Palace. The sunken garden at Kensington Palace is neat and tidy but not very colourful. The Italian Garden at Lancaster Gate is special and we had a very pleasant walk along The Serpentine towards Hyde Park. The best cafe is probably the one by the Italian Garden.

This garden next to Hyde park remains less crowded comparing to Hyde Park. There are some attractions here, noteworthy is Serpentine Gallery. Through out the year there are some exhibitions here worthy to watch. Serpentine lake, Diana memorial park, and newly added very famous structure "The Mastaba" are very near. Nice walking.

Gorgeous European gardens and excellent photo opportunities. Good walking park with attractive landmarks. There is a nice cafe for drinks and snacks or lunch. Be careful of the bees and wasps as you admire the flowers!

On our honeymoon, my husband and I spent an overcast day wandering through the gardens, visiting the memorials and sculptures, and having tea by the river. It was beautiful, relaxing, and a perfect way to get some time outside.

Kensington Gardens (one of London’s 8 Royal Parks) runs right alongside Hyde Park (the two are divided by the Serpentine River) and is full of activity, attractions and things to do. The Gardens get very busy on weekends so I’d recommend coming during the week.

The main attraction is Kensington Palace, home to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Prince William and Kate Middleton) and their children which you can visit for an admission fee (though sadly the Royal wing is off limits and you don’t get a personal meet and greet!). Other things to see in the leafy gardens include:

• The Albert Memorial
• Queen Victoria Statue
• Diana Playground (pirate ship and sculptures inspired by Peter Pan)
• Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Walk (7 miles long)
• The Italian Gardens & Italian Gardens cafe
• Serpentine Galleries
• The Allotment (learn to grow your own fruit and vegetables)

The Gardens are large and expansive and are great for walking as well. You will certainly get your daily exercise requirement if you take in the whole area of the Gardens. They are also a beautiful place to relax and unwind on a fine day. I was lucky enough to take a tour with my cousin who lives nearby, but everything is well sign posted and mapped so you should have no issue finding the key attractions.

Although it is thought to be part of Hyde Park, it has a royal feeling with the closeness to Kensington Palace. You can feed the ducks and swans while having a picnic near the lake.
