Strolling down Hyde Park in London you come across a surprise, not a British garden but an Italian renaissance garden structured with pools and sculptures and a beautiful view of the lake and the trees. It is a beautiful garden where you can sit and enjoy the view read a book or have lunch. Italian Gardens was created as a gift from Prince Albert to Queen Victoria. The Italian Garden at Kensington gardens was built in 1860. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s initials are engraved on one of the walls of the Pump House.
The sound of the fountains and the beauty of the structures complement the green background surrounding it. You can easily access this part of the park from Bayswater Rd., the closest underground station is Lancaster Gate. The Italian Gardens are located at the top of the Serpentine Lake so you have a beautiful view of the lake.
