London Design Museum and Holland Park

The London Design Museum was the 2018 European Museum of the Year.  Located a 15 minute walk from Kensington Gardens, the museum covers all aspects of modern design: industrial, fashion, graphics, architectural, and product.

Outside the Design Museum, a tilted-head sculpture by Eduardo Paolozzi welcomes visitors.


Inside the museum, the galleries highlight design through the ages, with a permanent exhibit on the top floor and temporary exhibitions below.

Outside the Design Museum, Holland Park covers about 22 hectares (.22 sq. km, 54 acres), with formal gardens in the south of the park and a semi-wild woodland to the north.

The formal gardens also have tennis courts, a cricket pitch, a giant chess set, two Japanese gardens, and a variety of sculptures.

Holland Park is located in one of the most expensive residential districts of London and provides a brief escape from the city lifestyle outside the park.
