Kensington Palace Gardens

Originally part of Hyde Park, Kensington Palace Gardens is directly opposite Hyde Park, and they were split in two by the wife of George the second, Queen Caroline.

The 265-arce gardens have served as inspiration to M. Barrie to write Peter Pan, which it’s the first story was published in 1902, a bronze statue of Peter Pan has been erected at the gardens.
There is also the Albert Memorial, which was commissioned by Queen Victoria after her husband died from typhoid fever at 42 years old. Kensington Palace itself is in the west-end of the gardens. While nearby, visitors can also visit the Natural History Museum, the V&A Museum and the Science Museum, which are all just south of the gardens.
