Discover the hidden secrets and beautiful scenery of Kensington Gardens on this specially designed route through the park that has been enjoyed by Londoners for 200 years, and whose history goes back even further!
Find the pools and fountains specially made by a prince for his queen, the statue of the boy who never grew up, the elves who live in an oak, a royal palace, an ancient well, a floral path and London’s most dazzling memorial.
And at every stop there are challenges, activities and stories that bring the gardens to life!
Here are some great things to know about Kensington Gardens!
We give you instructions about how to get to the starting point (see below). Once you’re within a couple of kilometres, you’ll see the starting point on a special interactive map so there’s no problems getting there.
Once you’ve started, we’ll show you where to go next each time on the interactive map – it’s super easy to get from one location to the next!
You don’t need to pay to go inside anywhere to enjoy the route. Everything is accessible outside or where places are free to enter.
If you want a break, you can stop whenever you want. Have a drink or an ice cream at one of the cafes in the Gardens, then start again when you’re ready. You can even come back another day and pick up where you left off!
And like all TripMonsters routes, you can do Kensington Gardens offline if you don’t want to use mobile data. Once the route has downloaded (you have to be online for that!) you can switch off mobile data and enjoy the route. Just leave Location enabled if prompted (this doesn’t use any data and you’ll need it to follow the map to your locations).
