30 minutes walk or 15 minutes bike ride. Large park, Family friendly, cafes along the way. nice leafy walk.
A huge, sprawling park, packed with interesting areas - rose garden, sculptures, cafes, a lake and more. Definitely worth exploring on a sunny day. Hop on a city bike to take it all in, or just head straight to the Serpentine (river - but looks more like a lake) to get to the heart of the action. …
Lovely in the summer if you are walking and lovely all year round if you are driving.

“One of the most extraordinary buildings in the country. Even if you have no interest in animals or natural history, it is worth coming here - it's free! - to look inside at the architecture. It was built as a 'cathedral to nature', and it's a delight.”
“Elaborate shopping emporium with glittering Egyptian Room and acclaimed Food Hall.”
“Wonderful museum, and completely free if you don't go to the special exhibition. Has a little of everything, but Fashion Through The Ages and the Sculpture hall are favourites. You could spend hours or days here! The main shop - right behind the main entrance - is the best place to get unique and affordable souvenirs to take back home. ”
“Just a short walk away is Green Park with Buckingham Palace adjacent to it. Whilst you're there also visit St. James Park and Westminster.”
“All science, all the time. You'll find space ships, engine parts, interactive areas and more. Free (except for the special exhibitions) and worth popping into, but of the three South Kensington Museums, this is my least fave, but it's still good. If you have kids, though, it's a must! 10-12 minutes' walk from the flat.”
