Italian Gardens | The Last Autumn Sun In Hyde Park

Italian Gardens - Hyde Park


Right before I made an appears at the LDNBloggersTea session I stopped by Hyde Park for a Stroll as I still had some time to kill. The day was sunny but yet so deceiving. London has become so cold as we wait for winter to fully take hold of the city. In a bid to hold on to that cozy and warm feeling of autumn I made a dash to Hyde Park to take in a little sun and explore the beautiful Italian Gardens. 

This is a 150 year garden located across from Lancaster Gate and right at the end of the river that flows through Kensington Gardens before in becomes the Hyde Park's Serpentine. Believed to have been a gift from Prince Albert to his beloved Queen Victoria. Beautifully carved marble basins with stone statues. I love wondering by on Sundays as its less busy and not a lot of people flock to this part unless you are specifically coming for the gardens or are staying nearby. If you have watched Bridge Jones: The Edge of Reason and Wimbledon you may have spotted a scene where the gardens feature as well as many other films.

  2. What fantastic photos. You certainly were opportunistic in taking advantage of a wonderful day! Makes me want to head out with my SLR the next time the sun comes up... which should be tomorrow... now to find my battery charger :/

    1. Haha Thanks. With winter coming I thought I'd better take my chances with that last bit of sun we were most likely to see in London.

  4. I must admit that although I have visited Hyde Park a few times it has only really been in passing and I never even knew this area existed! You have captured that late Autumn colour and light amazingly well, brilliant photos, look forward to visiting next time I am in London!

  5. Looks amazing.
    London is so beautiful with good weather, it's a shame it is often covered in clouds and rain!
