Kensington Gardens Tours

1 review
Leave the bustling streets behind as you explore Kensington Gardens, one of the city’s most famous green spaces. Discover landmarks including the Albert Memorial, Kensington Palace, and Serpentine River; pick up practical gardening tips in the Allotment; or simply absorb the atmosphere at one of the park’s many cafés.

The Basics
Discover Kensington Gardens and other nearby Royal Parks on a bicycle tour, or follow a multipark trail such as the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Walk to explore at your own pace. Gain insight into the historic 265-acre (107-hectare) gardens and wider Kensington on a private tour of the district, or enjoy the flexibility of a self-guided tour to stroll the park as it suits you, taking advantage of hop-on hop-off services that stop nearby.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Kensington Gardens is popular with families, joggers, and outdoor lovers.
  • Save time with a trail or tour that includes neighboring Hyde Park, Green Park, and St. James Park.
  • Kensington Gardens has wheelchair-accessible paths, restrooms for visitors with disabilities, and a free transfer service, Liberty Drives, for visitors with mobility issues.

How to Get There
Just next to Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens is located in west central London. To get there by public transit, take the underground to Lancaster Gate on the Central Line or Bayswater on the District Line. Alternatively, take bus 148 from London Victoria to Victoria Gate. Hop-on hop-off services also stop near the gardens.

When to Get There
Kensington Gardens is open year-round, from early morning until dusk. Different seasons bring different vistas, from spring’s avenues of fresh blooms to winter’s festive walkways, so there’s always something to see.

The Peter Pan Connection
Look out for the park’s bronze statue of Peter Pan, located west of the river. The writer of the original tales, JM Barrie, lived in Kensington with his Saint Bernard dog and spent a lot of time walking in the park. It was here he met the Llewelyn Davies family, who would go on to serve as inspiration for Barrie’s famous stories and characters.
