The palace of Princess Diana which become a museum. The park is huge and you can spend quite a bit of time strolling and enjoying the quiet park.

We found the Kensington Gardens during our walk through Hyde Park. Very traditional English gardens were in full bloom with spring flowers and spring trees. We strolled through the gardens, but did not pay to enter Kensington Palace.

I like it here a lot. Because it was the residence of Princess Diana. I was excited and impressed to have visited.

Although the weather was temperamental the scenery was lovely. Squirrels feeding from your hands and all type of birds.

I thought Kensington Gardens was beautiful! It is a great walk with pets or just with a coffee! Kensington Palace is in the area and I loved that you could just walk the gardens and go to the palace at the same time!
