It’s easy to get stressed out with today’s busy life, particularly in somewhere like London. However, there are plenty of wonderful parks to go and detox and Holland Park is among the best of them! Being the Royal Borough’s largest park, it’s a haven for different flora, wildlife and woodland, making Holland Park in West London the perfect place to unwind away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.
How can I get to Holland Park?
The former estate is home to 22 hectares of gardens, sports facilities, an open-air theatre with performances throughout the summer, and a children’s play area to keep the kids entertained. The park is also the base for the ecology centre, running events and educational workshops all year round. The stunning Kyoto Garden brings Japan to life in London, with beautiful maple and cherry trees with a small lake at the heart. Bright orange carp swim around the lake, with peacocks strutting on the lawns with the sound of the small waterfall in the background – you’ll truly feel like a buddha experiencing zen.
- The park is open daily from 7.30 am until 8 pm.
- Admission is free.
- There is disabled access at 4 different entrances.
