London - Kensington & Hyde Park (PDF Chapter)
This is the Kensington & Hyde Park chapter from Lonely Planet’s London guide-book.
You can navigate a serious learning curve or at least catch up on all you forgot since high school at South Kensington’s magnificent museums of the arts and sciences. You’ll need sever-al days – and considerable calorific reserves – to do them all justice.
- thumb through the Victoria & Albert Museum’s encyclopaedic A–Z of decorative and de-sign works from across the globe while admiring the astonishing architecture and making hordes of unexpected discoveries
- become hypnotised by the awe-inspiring stonework and inexhaustible collection of the Natural History Museum, while putting aside time to delve into its bucolic Wildlife Gar-den
- enjoy a picnic in Hyde Park, London’s green lung, and explore its many sights and gor-geous scenery
- restaurants & bars
