Once you slip inside the Kensington Gardens premises you will hear the grime and noise of the Kensington High Street magicked away to be replaced by the serene beauty of the gardens. The site features a Peter Pan statue, the Albert Memorial, Diana Memorial Playground, the Italian Gardens, and the Allotment Garden.
