Holland Park

Ilchester Place, Kensington, London

The Basics

Tranquil and leafy, Holland Park is an excellent place to take a breather from the thronged streets of central London. Stroll through the calming Japanese garden, picnic on the lawns, people-watch from the on-site café, view the east wing of Holland House (the rest of which was destroyed during World War II bombings), and visit the Holland Park Ecology Centre, which host talks, guided walks, and workshops from a facility on the west side of the park. The park is a stop on some hop-on hop-off bus tours of London.
