Kensington Gardens

Kensington Gardens was originally part of Hyde Park, but was bought by King William III as a peaceful area in order to help with his asthma. He commissioned Sir Christopher Wren to build Kensington Palace. The gardens in their current form were the work of Queen Caroline, who created the Serpentine and Long Water along it's eastern edge, and by Queen Victoria who commissioned the Italian Gardens and the Albert Memorial.
