Perks of Putting up in the Kensington Region on a London Visit

by Jasper Brown Travel Over The World

London, the irresistible hang-out for the lovers of good times has everything on offer to keep the interest of the avid traveller alive and buzzing. When it comes to parks and gardens, it has abundance of beauties spread across the length and breadth of the capital city for one to enjoy some serene times with a partner or family.

Apart from the famous parks like Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, St. James’s Park there is the exotic and niche Kyoto Garden situated in Holland Park which offers a unique Japanese style landscape, quiet and perfect for some serious lone time and tranquil settling in.

  • Kyoto Garden, housed inside Holland Park was built by the London Council in 1952 on the ruins of Cope Castle which was set in ruins in the Blitz, in 1940. A theatre, a cafe, a restaurant and sports facilities add to the attraction of Holland Park.

The Kyoto Gardens London, launched in 1991, stands testimony to the friendship between the East and the West and is a window to the exotically created manicured Japanese styled gardens and tiered waterfalls and a pond brimming with carps. Replete with stone lanterns and Japanese maple trees, you seem transposed into the land nurtured by the Rising Sun and a peacock or two makes the experience even more alive.

However, parking might be an issue in the vicinity of these garden, hence, option of availing a nearby accommodation to visit this spot, on foot, makes a lot of good sense. Park Grand London Kensington offers a comfortable and stylish boutique hotel experience in the region where you have both the options of either visiting on foot through a lovely walk down a beautiful neighbourhood or hopping on a subway and reaching the Entry Gate.

  • While, you are housed in the Kensington region, no way can you miss out on the grand icon of London, the unique feature which sets it apart from any other capital in the Western World, a palace with living monarchy. The palace has fostered and nursed the curiosity of billions of travellers across the globe and made Buckingham Palace, the focus of London travel diaries. In the near proximity are some of the other key Landmarks that has made London a distinctive experience, for example – the Westminster Abbey, the Westminster Palace, and Big Ben and on the other side of River Thames, the legendary ‘London Eye’.

But how to reach the Buckingham Palace, with minimum fuss? For a glitch-free travel, you can opt to hop onto any of the five subway lines mentioned to take you to the Royal Palace. The notable points are Westminster comprising Circle, District and Jubilee Lines, Victoria with Victoria, Circle and District Lines, St James’s Park with Circle and District Lines, Hyde Park Corner with Piccadilly Line and Charing Cross with Bakerloo and Northern Lines. Once you get down at the designated stop, the Palace will be a mere 10-15 minutes’ walk across some of the most irresistible sights and parks in London.
