Together with Lara I regularly visit parks to enjoy the peace and quiet that the park has to offer. Certainly now that autumn has arrived, those places will turn into a beautiful color palette. I’m a really big fan of this season.
This time we went to Kensington Gardens, a short ten minute walk from our serviced accommodation in South Kensington. We just had to follow a long way road which ended up on the Kensington High Road. There you can find different entries of Kensington Gardens.
The park is one of Londons eight Royal Parks and borders with Hyde Park. Centuries ago these two parks formed one, nowadays they are parted.
In 1689 the Park was bought by Willem III. The reason why is the fact that he was asmetic, the outdoor in the park would have a healing effect. Later he gave the assignment to the Architect Sir Christopher Wren to build the Royal Palace.
The park has different areas across 100 hectares. The area is covered with grasslands, major trees, flowerbeds, monuments and hiking trails.
Kensington Gardens is open from 6am, the closing time is different, check the closing times for the year. If you want to know more about this beautiful park, than visit the website of the Royal Parks Kensington Gardens.
