Park
“Excellent park for strolls, with a selection of cafes . Kensington Gardens is also home to Kensington Palace, the Serpentine and Sackler Public Galleries. Next door to the Sackler Gallery is a restaurant. Very close to our entrance to the park is a famous children's playground complete with pirate ship and elf tree. The playground is next to a coffee / sandwich stand. Cross over the north side of Kensington Gardens and you enter Hyde Park - walk around the serpentine lake, with its row boats, and pass the Diana water Memorial. Also good for children in the summer. The park is also good to walk through to get to other parts of london, such as South Kensington, Knightsbrige and Mayfair. ”

Athletics & Sports
“The park is not very big but it is beautiful, clean and with some nice and tidy gardens. On sunny days it can get busy but not as busy as other parks like Hyde Park. They have many sports facilities for outdoors sports, a fitness suite and a cafe. I use the tennis facilities and I am very happy with the courts. The cost is really low and there is a good number of courts (around 13), both tarmac and synthetic. The courts have trees around them to provide some peace and quiet while you play.”

Garden
“A picturesque waterfall flows into a peaceful rock pool, where koi carp dart beneath the surface and peacocks stalk past on the banks. It might sound like the setting for a Japanese fairytale, but this is, in fact, one of west London's most serene spaces: Holland Park's quaint Kyoto Garden. It's the perfect spot to unwind with a book, linger with your thoughts or fight your samurai rivals to the death. ”
