    A peaceful space in London. Grab a picnic from one of the shops at Holland Park tube station or Notting Hill and enjoy the surroundings. The Kyoto Gardens are beautiful.

    Kyoto Gardens, Holland Park
    The Kyoto Gardens are stunning and even when there are people about a sort of respectful hush always seems to fall over the place.

    Arguably one of London's poshest parks, occupying a 54 acre stretch sandwiched between the bustle of Kensington High Street and the megabucks town houses of Holland Park (the street, not to be confused with the park itself). Head straight for the formal gardens of the central area and 'managed wild' of the northern woodlands. During the summer months open air operas are staged here, a truly magical setting.

    A beautiful and serene park, about 10 minutes walk away from my apartment. The entrance is from High Street Kensington itself. Simply a stunning park for walks, children's play and also a super restaurant there in the middle of the park. There is also a famous Japanese Garden there. Michael Winner, now deceased, the famous food and wine critic, lived adjacent to this park and often was at the restaurant here.

    Have some very complicated memories of this place, but still rate it as one of the most overlooked of the London parks. Lovely way to spend the afternoon. South Kensington would be much poorer without it.

    Holland Park, Kensington and Chelsea - If you're looking for a beautiful park to relax and have a cheeky picnic in then this is the place! Peacocks roam free, there are Japanese themed gardens to walk through, it is stunning!

    I nice little park in the Kensington High st. area with some beautiful old houses surrounding it. Unfortunately my best memory here was having a squirrel hanging of a finger when I tried to feed it, boy did it hurt!

    Holland Park is one of my favourite park in West London. It's not too big as Hyde Park/Richmond Park, but also not that small. But the best thing about this 54 acres park is the other stuffs you find in it! Check this out, apart from the remains of the beautiful Holland House and its fountain, there are also a few small gardens scattered around, one with an Orangery while the other hosted a big chess set :)
    It has a cricket pitch and tennis court for the more sport challenged visitors. Then there is the Holland Park Theatre for some cultured summer outings.
    If you've never been to Japan, no need to go that far to enjoy the tranquility of a Japanese Garden, cause Holland Park has got one ;) It's pretty I tell you.
    And last but certainly not the least, the Peacocks!!! Yup, you watch them struting along with their beautiful tail (the male at least) in all their glory :)
    As it is not very far from Notting Hill and Kensington, it's absolutely worth a visit.

    A human size park, very well taken care of. Nice Japanese Garden. I even saw a peacock! I went around 8 pm on a sunday in may. The light was perfect. It was quiet, with few people. A good place to have a quiet moment with oneself.

    An underrated gem of a park in West London. Much smaller than it's more illustrious cousins Regent and Hyde, this has just as much charm and a nice outdoor spot in the area.

    Holland park, located in the prestigious west side of London, is a quaint beautiful garden with picturesque landscaping fit for a wedding! Beautiful rose gardens and grassy fields of green and fountains

    If you are lucky you might be able to catch an opera, fashion show or even a play. If you are on a budget you might be able to just sit outside the hall to hear the opera.

    If you are a fan of "Something blue" by Emily Griffin check out Belvedere! Emily Griffin wrote "Something Borrowed" which has turned into a chick flick movie.

    Holland Park is often known for the Japanese Garden but I feel like there is so much more to it!!

    There's a pretty cool peacock there as well. Hope you get to see it!
