Kensington Gardens, London
Kensington Gardens is one of 8 Royal Parks in London and covers 265 acres. It is a good mix of traditional city parks and more modern green spaces, the latter mainly in the form of the Serpentine Galleries. There’s a playground with a big wooden pirate ship, a sensory trail and play sculptures inspired by the hero of the park, Peter Pan, which is nice, it adds a dash of magic somehow. You can see the Peter Pan statue, and several other monuments, like the Queen Victoria Statue, The Arch by Henry Moore, the King William III statue and the enchanting Kensington Gardens Bandstand.
There are several cafes and events throughout the year. Rather nice if you fancy a break from the hustle and bustle of the city streets.
