Home / England and Wales / London - Home of the 2012 Olympics / Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens 74

Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park are two historical royal parks in central London. Although they are in the centre of London, you can actually escape the hustle and bustle of London in these two beautiful and serene parks. There are many charming features and memorials to explore in the parks. At Kensington Gardens are Kensington Palace, several memorials to Princess Diana, the Albert Memorial, to name a few. The parks are rich in wildlife - children love feeding the birds whereas I enjoy watching the squirrels. Read more about Kensington Gardens HERE. Read more about Hyde Park HERE.
