Separated from Hyde Park by the Serpentine, a lake used by boaters and swimmers, this park is calmer and more peaceful than its neighbor, and features many attractions including a statue of Peter Pan, Albert Memorial and the Serpentine Art Gallery.

This was amazing and so huge, just breathtaking and beautiful. You can also check out Princess Diana children's playground. My boys loved this so much, we spent maybe two hours there.
