Holland Park

Holland Park is one of London's most elegant districts. It's the ideal location for those wanting to escape the clamour of the city but who don’t want to travel too far out of the centre. Holland Park has a reputation as an affluent and fashionable area, known for attractive large Victorian townhouses, and high-class shopping and restaurants. There are many popular shopping destinations located around Holland Park such as High Street Kensington, Notting Hill, Holland Park Avenue and Portobello Market. Holland Park itself boasts beautiful woodland trails, manicured lawns, formal gardens and the Kyoto Japanese Garden with its resident Koi. The former ballroom of Holland House is now the stylish Belvedere restaurant, while the orangery and ice house host temporary exhibitions. In the summer open-air opera and theatre concerts are held in the grounds.
