Kensington Gardens

  • Historic features
  • Public art


Once part of Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens offers a mix of old and new park pastimes and green space. Get your fix of contemporary art and architecture at the Serpentine Galleries, marvel at the history and heritage of Kensington Palace or admire the Victorian splendour of the Albert Memorial. Over in the Diana Memorial Playground , kids will enjoy the huge wooden pirate ship, sensory trail and play sculptures, inspired by the adventures of fictional park hero, Peter Pan. Did you know? You can pick up tips for growing fruit and vegetables from the park’s very own allotment which is also home to a number of chickens.
