Highlights

  • 270 acres of green space 
  • Albert Memorial is in the southeast corner of the park
  • Home to the Elfin Oak, an elaborate, carved, 900-year-old tree stump
Kensington Gardens was originally a section of Hyde Park designated for William III’s residence at Kensington Palace. Today, the gardens are only separated by the Serpentine and the Long Water and feature many beloved areas like the Peter Pan statue and Princess Diana’s Memorial Playground. Check out the Serpentine Gallery with its sunken gardens and flower walk.
