Separated from Hyde Park by the Serpentine, a lake used by boaters and swimmers, this park is calmer and more peaceful than its neighbor, and features many attractions including a statue of Peter Pan, Albert Memorial and the Serpentine Art Gallery.

We walked through these gardens on a beautiful sunny day in November when walking from Notting Hill to Buckingham Palace. You see people walking their dogs and people jogging. You can just sit down and watch people if you have time. So relaxing.

It is such a beautiful place in London that you really don't want to come out of it. I am missing London very badly. Want to come here again and again. Such a beautiful city and such a beautiful garden.

Walk the many paths, dodge the joggers, see the statues, fountains and palace. Feed the parrots and squirrels monkey nuts and enjoy these beautiful acres of green in the heart of the nations capital.

Went to the Palace and then spent some time in the gardens. Although they were not in bloom at this time, I could visualize just how they might look in the spring. Saw the area where Harry and Meaghan came out to announce their engagement.

Kensington Gardens isn’t like the larger parks in the city as it has lots of smaller areas, whether that’s the Italian garden or the orangery and the paths divide the lawns up a little more so you can feel more secluded. Great place for a...More

Kensington Gardens are beautiful. I think the English have a unique way with their gardens. And these are absolutely lovely. It was great taking a walk and just enjoying our time in this beautiful place.
