Kensington Gardens

Kensington, London

If you’re the type of person who needs to get some fresh air in order to clear your head and de-stress, there are plenty of beautiful greeneries and open spaces in London. Many of the big parks are often filled with people but you can also find a quiet spot in Kensington Gardens.

Kensington Gardens

St Dunstan in the East

St Dunstan’s Hill, London

Nestled between London Bridge and the Tower of London sits this beautiful structure. It was once one of London’s most vibrant churches but after years of damage from the Great Fire of London and the Blitz, it now serves as a quiet garden space for visitors. St Dunstan in the East is often overlooked by tourists which makes it an ideal place if you’re looking for somewhere to relax. The remaining structure has merged with nature to create a peaceful oasis in the centre of the city.
