Take respite from the bustling city in one of the capital’s eight Royal Parks. William III purchased the area in 1689 to be made into the private gardens of Kensington Palace; the asthmatic King enjoyed its tranquility and salubrious air. Today, Kensington Gardens serve as a peaceful refuge for all people living in, working in, or visiting Central London. Stroll through the avenues of trees and ornamental flower beds, pop into the Serpentine Gallery, and take in some of the Gardens’ most famous landmarks including the Albert Memorial, Peter Pan Statue, and the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground.

Kensington Gardens Reviews
Just had a couple of hours spare so we went to feed the Parakeets. So lovely! give it go, we took apples, but bird seed seems to work for others more »
This is a quiet park for a nice walk among green lawns, parrots, robins, and other birds singing around. To my suprise, there were no lights after dark, so it is a bit scary then. Perhaps teh Royals..... more »
Beautiful surroundings.... perfect for our afternoon picnic...plenty of bins which was a plus....kids really enjoyed the run around and the princess Diana park was just perfect. Fantastic visit and will most definitely return as it is surrounded by tube stations .
Lovely place. Beautiful green space. Lovely pond. Wildlife is lovely. Maze too was great. Cafe also. All good.
