Attractions near the Thistle Kensington Gardens

Back to nature at Kensington Gardens

A quieter alternative to Hyde Park, lose yourself in the landscaped surrounds of Kensington Gardens and escape the bustle of the city centre. This huge park covers 100 hectares, and with royal residences, exquisite gardens and cultural monuments all found on its grounds, there's more than enough to keep you occupied for an entire day.

The Gardens' most-famous site is Kensington Palace, the former home of Diana, Princess of Wales and the current home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (otherwise known as 'Kate and Wills'). Other famous sites include the Serpentine Gallery, the Albert Memorial, manicured flower displays and hoards of furry squirrels that call this place home. The park also has two large playgrounds to keep the children entertained while you soak up the scenery.

Celebrity encounters at Madame Tussauds

The lifelike wax figures at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum have been entertaining Londoners and visitors since 1835, and the Museum is still listed as London's favourite tourist attraction.

The collection is updated regularly to keep up with the changing world, introducing new faces to the royal collection along with other world leaders and the biggest stars from music, film and sport. The Chamber of Horrors is one of the Museum's most-popular exhibits and is not for the faint hearted.
