Knightsbridge, Kensington and Kensington Palace, London
This monument was designed by Gilbert Scott for Queen Victoria and completed in 1876 and is located in the south of Hyde Park.
With typical British eccentricity we even provide a walk way for pigeons to get to the water in the fountains in Kensington Gardens!
These are in a large Italianate garden that cascades down to the northern end of the Serpentine and provide a pleasant and attractive place to sit in summer.
This statue of J M Barrie's Peter Pan was cast in 1912 by George Frampton. It is full of delightful detail - rabbits, squirrels and fairies. Children of all ages should see it!
This is a small attractive garden surrounded by high box hedges but with viewpoints on all four sides.
Although originally part of the private Kensington Palace the Orangery is a separate building and is now a rather elegant restaurant serving coffee, patisserie and light lunches.
This upper frieze representing the Arts and the Sciences is the only decoration on the red brick buidling with its shallow iron and glass dome.

Entrance to KENSINGTON PALACE. This is the traditional home of the Prince of Wales. Today, Princess Margaret has apartments in the palace.
The tasteless mix of styles makes it worth a visit: Classicism meets German Gothic, only surpassed by a golden Albert statue.
This is a lovely park and an excellent place for a stroll. Even though we were there in January, it was still beautiful and a lively place to people watch. Don't miss the Peter Pan statue.
If you love to shop this is the place to be. Even if you don't like to shop you have to go by and at least take a picture..its a landmark.
