Kensington Palace is beautiful, as are the gardens. Great place to spend part of the day and end it with afternoon tea at The Orangery!!!

In front of the Kensignton Palace and adjacent to Hyde Park, the gardens are as much of an attraction as the palace itself. Take a leisurely stroll through the gardens, and relax

The park really comes alive during the Christmas season. From late November through the beginning of January the park puts on a Winter Wonderland! It was very well done and nicely set up but it was a bit crowded and expensive.

London has more green space per square mile than any other major city besides Stockholm. The parks here in general are pretty amazing. Kensington Gardens is one of my favorite, particularly in the autumn when the leaves turn brilliant reds and oranges. You can grab some takeaway and some wine from the Whole Foods on Kensington High Street and have an awesome picnic. Kensington Gardens is also a great place to go with kids in London. It has a big pond with ducks and geese, as well as an amazing playground (see Diana, Princess of Wales Playground).Recommended for:Family Travelers

Whenever I am in London I try to get a hotel near Hyde Park to have opportunity to walk thru the park. Park is of course just a park but it is very peaceful to walk in. The park is amazing in autumn when leaves are changing colors and it is great at any other times of the year. It is huge compared to most of the parks in the center of any European city. One thing to note is that there are only very few cafeterias etc within the park so prepare accordingly - it can be half an hour walk to get to next open cafeteria which might also be full of people trying to get their coffee. The most convenient places to stay in recent years have been hotels near south Kensington station. From there it is a nice 45 minute walk to the start of Oxford street.

I really loved spending time in Hyde Park. One of my best memories from my most recent trip to London was renting bikes here and exploring the park, which is quite large (much larger than I anticipated).
