Right before I made an appears at the LDNBloggersTea session
I stopped by Hyde Park
for a Stroll as I still had some time to kill. The day was sunny but yet so deceiving.
London has become so cold as we wait for winter to fully take hold of the city. In a bid to hold on to that cozy and warm feeling of autumn I made a dash to Hyde Park to take in a little sun and explore the beautiful Italian Gardens.
This is a 150 year garden located across from Lancaster Gate and right at the end of the river that flows through Kensington Gardens
before in becomes the Hyde Park’s Serpentine. Believed to have been a gift from Prince Albert to his beloved Queen Victoria.
Beautifully carved marble basins with stone statues. I love wondering by on Sundays as its less busy and not a lot of people flock to this part unless you are specifically coming for the gardens or are staying nearby.
If you have watched Bridge Jones: The Edge of Reason and Wimbledon you may have spotted a scene where the gardens feature as well as many other films. Many of London Parks
has featured in many a film.
If you are visiting London you will not be too far from one of these so it very much well worth taking the time to just relax in London’s green spaces
