Kensington Gardens
This very graceful park is a haven of tranquillity in central London. Originally attached to Kensington Palace the park has been fully open to the public since the 1840's. It has many aspects. The lovely crescent shaped lake known as the Serpentine stretches from the north to south east. Beyond the fountains at the north of this lake is the Peter Pan statue, quite enchanting. To the south some formal gardens and the dazzling gothic monument The Albert Memorial, now fully restored. Opposite that the equally splendid Royal Albert Hall. To the west is the round pond and Kensington Palace and also the Broadwalk where Princess Di, a little disguised, was an avid skateboarder.
