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.

After exploring the gorgeous home of the late Princess Diana, we took pictures of the garden. My 8-yr old grandson enjoyed taking pictures of the flowers and butterflies. Finally we sat and rested under a tree. It was so relaxing that I fell asleep.
