Kyoto Garden in Holland Park

Even if Holland Park is smaller than the other parks around London, as Hyde Park or St. Jame’s Park, it is as good as them. You’ll also find squirrels in there!

The Kyoto Garden, inside Holland Park, is a Japanese garden donated by the Chamber of Commerce of Kyoto in 1991.

It is a peaceful and tranquil are inside the park. It wasn’t crowded when I went there and luckily it was also a nice sunny day.

Kyoto Garden waterfall London

I really recommend you to go and take a walk in the park if you find yourself in London on a sunny day. The waterfall near the pond is relaxing and you can go near it by crossing a tiny bridge made of square blocks. In the pond there are big fishes and around it there are stone lanterns.

I suggest you to reach Holland Park from Notting Hill Gate underground station, walking along Holland Walk, a very nice little street.

What other hidden parks around London, or even around the world do you know?
