Holland Park
National Gallery National Gallery. London

Holland Park is widely regarded as one of the most romantic parks in London, due to its abundant wildlife and secluded hideaways.

The northern half or so of the park is semi-wild woodland, the central section around the ruins of Holland House is more formal with several garden areas, and the southernmost section is used for sport.

Holland House is now a fragmentary ruin, but a substantial part of its grounds were preserved from development and taken over by the local council.

'Holland Park' contains a famous Orangery, a cricket pitch, tennis courts, a Japanese garden, a Youth Hostel, one of London's best equipped children's playgrounds, squirrels and (impressively for a London park) peacocks.

Today the remains of the house form a backdrop for the open air Holland Park Theatre, which is the home of Opera Holland Park.
