  View of Bluebells in Holland Park, London, England Holland Park   Holland Park.

Soon after entering via the Sun Trap gate the paths go through areas of semi-wild woodland. We were there in the middle of April and so the Bluebells were in flower. There are also a lot of Daffodils but they were at the end of their flowering season, when we were there, and were looking a little tatty.

  Photograph of the statue of Lord Holland, Holland Park, London, England   Holland Park.

The path that we were on led us to the statue of Lord Holland, after whom the park is named, where we found a map board which gave us an idea of the layout of the park which was good as there were a number of paths running off in various directions.

  Photograph of  the Kyoto Japanese Garden, Holland Park, London, England   Holland Park.

The path to the right of the one mentioned above led from the Lord Holland Statue, in a south-westerly direction, down to the Kyoto Japanese Garden.

This traditional Japanese garden was created in 1991 as part of the Japan Festival of London and very nice it is too.
