Kensington Gardens information
Kensington Gardens is a gorgeous collection of manicured lawns, tree-shaded avenues and basins immediately west of Hyde Park. The picturesque 107-hectare expanse is technically part of Kensington Palace, located in the far west of the gardens.The large Round Pond is enjoyable to amble around and also worth a look are the lovely fountains in the Italian Gardens , believed to be a gift from Albert to Queen Victoria.
The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground , in the northwest corner of the gardens, has some pretty ambitious attractions for children. Next to the playground stands the delightful Elfin Oak , a 900-year-old tree stump carved with elves, gnomes, witches and small creatures. George Frampton’s celebrated Peter Pan statue is close to the lake, while the astonishing Albert Memorial is in the south of Kensington Gardens, facing the Royal Albert Hall .
