Separated from Hyde Park by the Serpentine, a lake used by boaters and swimmers, this park is calmer and more peaceful than its neighbor, and features many attractions including a statue of Peter Pan, Albert Memorial and the Serpentine Art Gallery.

All the gardens are well kept, but the memorial garden is a peaceful place with a small lake and fountains. The flowers are mainly white, with a few pink species.

Great open space for all ages to stroll and picnic and take in the more formal gardens. Unfortunately the sunken Palace garden was closed when I went due to a private function. Boris bikes are available to hire at the garden gates too.
