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.

This is such a beautiful park in such a lovely part of London. If you go to Kensington Palace take the time to walk around the gardens and don't miss the Peter Pan Statue (the detail of the statue is really pretty).

Even though the gardens weren’t in bloom, it’s still such a pretty place to walk around and see the layout of the gardens. Would love to come back in the spring and summer to see the gardens in full bloom.
