On Saturday Allyn and I made the most of the beautiful London sun and made our way to Holland Park to visit the Kyoto Garden. This stunning Japanese garden is a heavenly spot in Central London for anyone looking to escape the bustle of city life.
An abundance of squirrels can be found among the trees whilst a group of peacocks flirt their feathers for a leftover crumb. I loved watching as a little girl and her father held out their palms feeding the birds who flocked around them.
A small cascading waterfall bubbles over a family of koi fish that swim up to the marbled bridge.
We wandered round the pebbled paths before exploring the lesser known parts of the park. A small rose garden caught my eye, filled with tall thorny bushes of brightly coloured flowers.
Yet the garden of sunflowers was a pleasant surprise, a sunny favourite of mine that always bring back treasured memories of trying to grow the tallest of flowers with my Dad.
Holland Park is a new found favourite that I’ll definitely be returning to. What are you favourite gardens or parks in London?
