Today we did Kensington gardens, Hyde Park and visited once again, one of my sons favourites places the Science Museum. I take him to the Basement part, where you have a little soft play trolley thing with cushions, large Lego Bricks, a climbing frame, a water attraction with little boats and other activities children can do.
Holland Park has a lovely sandy playground inside, and some gorgeous gardens. Then from there along a bit further down, passed Kensington High Street onto Kensington Palace Gate, you’ll pass the albert memorial and Albert hall on your right, or the other end leads to Notting hill Gate. You’ll see these wonderful attractions as you walk through Kensington gardens, then onto if you walk along that end, of the royal park, which then leads to, Hyde Park. The road in between these two, if you take a right from Kensington gardens side, and carry on down this road, keep going you will come to the Imperial College. Then close by you come to the entrance to the Science Museum.
Through Hyde Park there is the Serpentine where you can have a bite to eat or a brew.
A great Spring and Summer treat, and place to be. We saw the Queens guards today playing music looking towards Kensington Palace Gate. This is an amazing sight to see, in their armour.
There are several ends to Hyde Park. if you walk down along passed the entrance near Bayswater, Lancaster Gate side, this will lead you onto Marble Arch which leads you onto Bond Street, Oxford street and the other end near Kensington will lead you towards Green Park, St James Park, Victoria and if you head towards Green Park you can end up in Piccadilly Circus, where you’ll find the Trocadero.
It can be so easy to get lost in such a big city like London, and even though I spent 18 years of my life living in London, I still have gotten lost at times.
Check out Visit London (link above the start of this blog).
However even I have managed to find my way around the big city.
There are plenty of buses you can catch, into London and trains too.
If you ever are lost always ask a cab driver as they always should know where they are going, or find the local tourist information.
The parks are great for running aswell as walking and playing. They often hold concerts and events. Plus running and fundraising events too, like Race for Life, the Royal Parks half marathon and many more.
So where do you like to go and what places would you recommend visiting.
I would love to know.
Many thanks for reading,
