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.

Such a lovely place to walk in London. Beautiful gardens, really enjoyed seeing the parakeets flying around. Lots of places to have a coffee if you like. Walked into Hyde park to see the Diana memorial fountain which is beautiful.
