Kensington GardensKensington Gardens
is one of the royal parks
, lying to the west of Hyde Park
. Most of it is in the City of Westminster
, but a small section to the west is in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea
It is sometimes regarded as being part of Hyde Park itself, but West Carriage Drive (The Ring) forms a clear boundary between the two.
Together with Green Park and St. James's Park, these parks form an almost continuous "green lung" in the heart of London between Notting Hill and Westminster.
Features of the gardens include the Albert Memorial, Kensington Palace, the Peter Pan statue, the Serpentine Gallery, Speke's monument and Round Pond.
