  • beautiful spot! it is however far from tranquil as you get countless idiots trying to play with the fish and as a result a guard is often posted on site who is often over zealous and tends to think they are Rambo. So, if the hoards of the great unwashed bother you then avoid. otherwise if you get there when its quiet then its very pleasant.
  • A lovely place to visit & take time out from the bustle of London. Luckily my visit was on a fairly quiet Monday in March at midday, so the tranquility of the Kyoto Garden was largely unspolit but I can imagine it would get busy & noisy during the summer & at weekends. The garden is planted with maples, blossom trees & trained conifers to give that authentic Japanese feel. There is a water cascade which provides movement & sound for the senses. The pond is quite shallow overall, which makes it very easy to watch the graceful & very large Koi carp as they swim & they appear to be very healthy & well cared for. There was also the added treat of the glimpse of a peacock which I was not expecting.
  • Uno dei parchi londinesi più belli. Ricco di aiuole fiorite, panchine, sentieri alberati, café e servizi. Merita la visita in particolare per il Giardino di Kyoto: un piccolo giardino all'orietale con tanto di cascata e piante tipiche dell'oriente, un luogo adatto alla meditazione nel centro della metropoli londinese. Se si è in cerca di pace peró meglio evitare di andarci nei weekend perché é metà di molti visitatori.
  • Lovely Japanese memorial garden in Holland park. Beautiful in spring with the blossom hiving it a more authentic feel. Very crowded on a Sunday and had to line up to walk around it which killed a bit of the atmosphere so would recommend a quieter day :)
  • This is simply the most beautiful little park I've been to in London. Must visit, just sit down and enjoy!

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
