Another one of London’s popular tourist locations in the beautiful Kensington Gardens that you need to make sure is on your list of places to visit in London. Kensington Gardens is among the royal gardens of London that where once private of Kensington Palace and now the public are free to enjoy at their own leisure.
Kensington Gardens are shared by the City of Westminster and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. These gardens cover an area of 270 acres and together with those other ones located beside it in the centre of London, such as the Green Park, Hyde Park and St. James’s Park, they all form a long green Lung.
Stepping into Kensington Gardens will bring a lot of things for the visitor to do and check out. It starts with the contemporary art and architecture at the Serpentine Galleries then goes to the history and heritage of Kensington Palace, and eventually ends with checking and knowing more about the history and building story of Albert Memorial. There is also an interesting place for the kids, where they will be able to have some fun. Which is the Diana Playground, kids will enjoy the huge wooden pirate ship, a sensory trail and play sculptures, which are inspired by the adventures of a fictional hero, Peter Pan.
It is not just that, but there is one other thing which lots of people might not be even expecting, which is the tips about growing fruits and vegetables that they could receive during their visit to the garden from the allotment. Which is also home for a number of chickens. We believe you didn’t even expect to hear something like that while searching about Kensington Gardens and the things that could be done inside there.
London is filled with green parks everywhere – there are even eight Royal Parks that you could explore. But it is not just about the parks, there are also many other attractions and touristic places which travellers should go to when they are in London.
