| Events in Holland Park | 10 Places to Stay

Holland Park was never a poor place. Traditionally, it was home to well-to-do families from the upper middle classes, and in the late 1800s, it became famous for the Holland Park Circle, an influential community of artists, art collectors and architects who lived there. Today's Holland Park, with its leafy west-London avenues, large, immaculate houses and foreign embassies, is beyond the reach of all but the wealthiest home-buyers. The Royal Crescent is a particularly impressive sight, comprising two curving terraces of houses, several storeys high and painted white. The district of Holland Park lies within a rectangle of sorts formed by Holland Road, Holland Park Avenue, Kensington Church Street and Kensington High Street. At the heart of this area is Holland Park itself, one of London's most enchanting spaces. Here, peacocks strut around the lawns and gardens while squirrels scamper about the rustic woodland trails. The Japanese garden is one of the most popular spots, complete with waterfall, lake and Coi carp. Holland Park is situated in the former grounds of a Jacobean mansion, only part of which remains. It also provides sports facilities and summer plays and opera performances held beneath the canopies of the Holland Park Theatre.
