Holland Park – a moment of calm

London has a beautiful selection of parks and green spaces.  One of my absolute favourite is Holland Park.  Based in west London in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.  Holland Park is the perfect setting to have a moment of calm away from the hustle and bustle of the city, it has a peaceful, romantic, family vibe.

The park has a giant chess set, tennis courts, a woodland play area for children and a well equipped children’s playground.  Unusually for a London park there are a number of beautiful peacocks wandering around.  There is also a beautiful Japanese Garden which has been created so perfectly giving the feeling of zen. The Kyoto garden is small but well designed and definitely worth a visit.
