Kensington Gardens, London
Kensington Gardens is attached to Hyde Park, but is often seen as the more peaceful side of the park where tourists and locals sit out for picnics or have a snooze. It covers 260 acres and sets the scene for the red brick Kensington Palace, which was once home to Princess Diana. The Serpentine Lake separates the two parks and the Diana Memorial Fountain is a popular place to dip your toes. Another popular feature of Kensington Gardens is the Peter Pan memorial, the character created by JM Barrie who frequented the gardens. Also located nearby is the Royal Albert Hall, which has hosted some of the world's most famous classical artists and some pop stars in its time, as well as the annual BBC Proms, while to the north of the park is the popular Portobello Road Market at Notting Hill, which sells anything from food to fashion.
