Published: 17/04/2018Now that the weather is getting better (well hopefully!), Holland Park is a great place to visit when the sun comes out. There are twenty-two hectares of gardens, parkland, children’s play parks, sports facilities and a café, and ideal location for residents and visitors alike for some summer sun.
The park was originally the grounds of Cope Castle, a Jacobean mansion, built by Sir Walter Cope in the seventeenth century, it was then renamed Holland House after the Earl of Holland’s wife inherited it.
“The Kyoto garden was designed by an eminent Japanese Garden designer and his team to celebrate the Japan Festival in London in 1992. It was a co-operative project between the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and the Kyoto Chamber of Commerce in Japan.” – (Information from the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea website rbkc.gov.uk)
Holland Park can be easily accessed by several buses, Holland Park, Notting Hill Gate and Kensington High Street underground stations.
