While wandering around in Kensington Palace grounds we ran across this beautiful secluded garden area which we later learned was called the Sunken Garden. Surrounded by tall hedges and locked gates it was a treat to peek throught the many openings and feast eyes upon this lovely area. I am including it as a seperate tip because I felt it was worthy of a special visit.The garden was created in 1909 and based on a Tudor garden in Hampton Court. On the path surrounding the area are several park benches to sit on and enjoy ones surroundings.Rather romantic also.

Address: Kensington Gardens, London W8 4PX
Directions: The Sunken Garden is located just beyond the shop exit at Kensington Palace.
