6 reviews of Kyoto Garden in Holland Park in English
one of many breathing places in London, and one of the most beautifull. it's a park inside a park which makes the visit even better, and you have the cafe only a short walk away. If you want to get out of the bustle of London for a couple of minutes, this is where you should go.
As tranquil as anywhere you’ll ever find yourself in London, Kyoto Garden is a traditional Japanese garden created in 1991 by a team of Japanese gardeners sponsored by Kyoto Chamber of Commerce in association the Japan Festival of London. Its fairly large waterfall (I’m guessing it stands about 15 feet), feeds a medium sized pond filled with colourful koi (carp). A lovely stone path outlines the pond with a little bridge and viewing platform which crosses the pond at the base of the falls. Other highlights of Kyoto Garden are a stone washbasin, Japanese style shrubbery and red maples. With the sounds of the rushing waterfall enhancing the bucolic feel of this garden, it’s easy to forget you’re only a short walk away from Notting Hill or Kensington High Street.
It’s not big - a quite small fenced-off area, in fact, embedded in the northwestern part of Holland Park - but it’s very peaceful. Apparently built by Japanese artists brought in for a 1991 celebration, it has a cascading waterfall, a stone path above a carp-filled pond, a stone washbasin, Japanese shrubs cut in distinctive style, and a few benches from which to contemplate it all. Japanese gardens are about tranquility, and this is a good spot to know about when you need it.
The best park in London! It feels like you are taking a stroll in Japan. The garden changes with every season but the best time to visit is autumn or spring. Close to Holland Park tube station, bring a book and just enjoy the peace.
The Kyoto Garden in Holland Park, opened in 1991 to celebrate the Japanese Festival. The garden is a medium-sized pond and waterfall in the heart of one of West London’s most beautiful parks. It’s the perfect place to go, unwind and gather your thoughts or even to have a picnic with family / friends.
