I liked the walk in this park from the Natural Science Museum to the Buckingham Palace, through the Hyde and the Green parks. This one has big lawns, a lake, a Palace (!) and lot of animals - squirrels, waterfowl, etc. Nice to stroll around...More

The gardens at Kensington Palace are a must! Even though there were many visitors on the day we visited, there was a calming serenity about the gardens. I see why Princess Diana loved it so. I would definitely recommend you visit!

A place that is well worth taking the time to visit between all the busyness of the smog filled city, get out here and clear your lungs out!

It is a very relaxing area of London. The garden was pretty big and it was just nice walking around. Nice place!
