Create an itinerary including Kensington Gardens
Take respite from the bustling city in one of the capital’s eight Royal Parks. William III purchased the area in 1689 to be made into the private gardens of Kensington Palace; the asthmatic King enjoyed its tranquility and salubrious air. Today, Kensington Gardens serve as a peaceful refuge for all people living in, working in, or visiting Central London. Stroll through the avenues of trees and ornamental flower beds, pop into the Serpentine Gallery, and take in some of the Gardens’ most famous landmarks including the Albert Memorial, Peter Pan Statue, and the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground. Before you head to London, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly London trip itinerary builder app, to make sure you see all that London has to offer, including Kensington Gardens.

  • Lovely walk through the Gardens the day after 25th anniversary of death of the Princess of Wales. Always moving to see the tributes to this British icon.

  • Very nice park, where you can walk, have a picnic or ride a bike. There also ducks that you can feed, crows and squirrels to be found and photographed 🥰 When I visit London I try to spend some time on these beautiful open parks
  • I felt that Kensington Gardens is more of Princess Diana Memorial. I could feel such deep connection with the princess while walking around here, imagining how she must have walked around the same garden trails. It was a peaceful, nice walk. I do think that a lot more could be done to enhance the garden though.
