Holland Park used to be the grounds of Cope Castle, a large Jacobean Mansion. It was then renamed Holland House before being badly damaged in WW2. It is now one of the best parks in London. Take a refreshing stroll around Holland Park and you’ll soon feel like you’re in the heart of the English Countryside. Be sure to check out the peaceful Kyoto Gardens or play with the giant chess-set. The soup and carrot cake from the cafe is delicious, but the pigeons will try to steal it from you if you decide to sit outside!
