“A picturesque waterfall flows into a peaceful rock pool, where koi carp dart beneath the surface and peacocks stalk past on the banks. It might sound like the setting for a Japanese fairytale, but this is, in fact, one of west London's most serene spaces: Holland Park's quaint Kyoto Garden. It's the perfect spot to unwind with a book, linger with your thoughts or fight your samurai rivals to the death. ”

“Queen Mary's Garden is a world-famous garden named after the wife of King George V. In 1932 when Queen Mary's Gardens opened to the general public, the first superintendent planted a rose garden which was completed in 1934. The rose garden is London's largest collection of roses with approximately 12,000 roses planted within the gardens. Would highly recommend to visit in summer/early autumn time to see roses in bloom, not to mention loads of art fairs, statues, fountains, and Dozens of varieties of other flowers and plants to see for free and rise your mood!
