About Holland Park
Holland Park is a popular park in London, formerly the grounds of a Jacobean mansion called Holland House, and lending its name to various other areas close by which were not originally part of the grounds but make up the district anyway. Originally a rural area in the 19th century, Holland Park has been built up over the years and is now one of the most prestigious and expensive postcodes in the City, with many homes here selling for over £10 million. An area of great natural beauty, Holland Park also has a great deal of stand-out, listen architecture. The Royal Crescent is a Grade II listed street, designed in 1839, consisting of two curved terraces, which uphold much of the architectural fashions of the day.

Things to do in Holland Park
Holland Park itself is one of the main attractions of this area. The park is popular all year round and has a wide variety of things to do, with a Japanese Garden, cricket pitch, tennis courts and areas of almost untamed woodland to explore and enjoy. The park is also home to the Holland Park Theatre during the summer months, providing eclectic performances in a beautiful setting for a relaxed evening’s entertainment. For food and drink, there are plenty of cosy cafes and casual pubs available. Despite Holland Park being one of the more upmarket and expensive locations in the City, there are a surprising lack of top-end restaurants, although this doesn’t mean that there isn’t anywhere to grab a bite. In the summer, Paul is a charming bakery and cafe, which has a good variety of foods to eat in, or to take over to the park for a sunny lunch break. The Belvedere is a very popular restaurant in the evenings, and is situated in the remains of Holland House. For a post-work drink, The Mitre is a favourite spot with business people and casual drinkers, and offers outside seating and a traditional pub atmosphere.
