Not nearly the crowds of Kensington Gardens, but all the beauty. Tucked away in a gorgeous West London neighborhood, men playing chess greet park-goers near the entrance. Kids will head straight for the top-notch adventure playground before chasing the renowned Holland Park peacocks and friendly squirrels. The peaceful Kyoto Japanese Garden is perfectly manicured and complete with fish. Wander the trails and make sure to find the ice cream stand in the middle of the small park. In summer, the park hosts outdoor opera and Shakespearean events. High Street Kensington is in one direction while the lovely little shopping area of Holland Park is in the other, with gorgeous quintessential London homes and mews. read more about Holland Park

One of the most fascinating city gardens is hidden behind towering brick walls near the Chelsea Royal Hospital. Founded in 1673 as an apothecaries garden to train students, Chelsea Physic Garden is still used today for education and medicinal research. Public hours are restricted to Wednesdays through Fridays and Sundays, April through October. Also on site are a nice little shop and a cafe. Events, activities and lectures are held regularly. Most Londoners have heard of the garden yet few have ever visited this hidden gem.
