Kensington Gardens


It has been already few times we took kids to Kensington Gardens. Reason being, it is the nearest park within walking distance from Imperial College London and also Bayswater. Not only the kids love going there,  but we adults love it too. :D

So from the previous post, after taking pictures at Royal Albert Hall, me and Zafri crossed the busy road towards Queen's Gate, Kensington Gardens. But worry not, we only crossed when the traffic light turn green for pedestrian. ;D

Queen's Gate, Kensington Gardens.

Yay, i'm free now 

A nice cafe to eat sandwich and have a drink for a short break
It was such a big relief for me when entering the park. It was much more peaceful. Hehe. And i quickly released Zafri from his stroller because i knew it was already safe for him to walk and run around the area. And FYI, actually cycling is not allowed in the park for safety reason. So thoughtful, right? 

Hi i'm here, Doggie! :P

I wanna dance on the grass, Mommy..:P

Can we go there, Mommy? :)

Kensington Gardens at the end of Winter..most of trees were still leafless..but the view was still beautiful, subhanallah. :)

Come quickly, mommy..:P

Kensington Palace ;)

My dream came true when i saw Kensington Palace in front of my eyes. If we were lucky, we might bump into Kate Middleton and Prince George. :P 

But in my dreams only! hehe. Since there are benches provided along the path so i thought to rest our feet for a while. But my active boy would not let me, he wanted to have a walk again. Tsk!

Let's go mommy

Ok, take my picture now :D

Welcome to Kensington Palace, mommy . Ngeee...Lol

visitor's entrance
At first, i thought to visit Kensington Palace and entered from the visitor's entrance with other visitors. But then Zafri ran off and went outside the palace. So i just gave in, i was sure that he would be boring inside and i would not enjoyed touring the palace if he got cranky and made a scene. So i kinda missed it. Well, maybe next shaa Allah. :)

sedapnya dia lepak kt luar ni

the compound of the palace is so neat and well-kept :)
Kensington Palace is the former home of  late Princess Diana and now is a royal residence of  Prince Willian and Kate Middleton as well as Prince George ;)

A Statue of Queen Victoria

Round Pound in front of Kensington Palace. :)
One more place in Kensington Gardens that i always wanted to go and see was Round Pound. But unfortunately the fence was built around it, a little bit frustrated there but there must be a reason behind it like a safety issue so i tried to chill back. :P 

Since by that time we were already hungry so we took out our snack like chocolates and juice and that's enough to give us some energy before taking a proper lunch. :)

Anyway, we went near to the fence to take pictures of the birds and ducks in the pond and on the ground. They were so many of them and they were gorgeous. :)

Hello Gorgeous!

Pretty birds
