Holland Park, London

Enjoy this taster of our book, Herb Lester’s London Address Book.

One of central London’s more surprising green spaces, with its Japanese garden, ornamental ponds and strutting peacocks. In recent years British Longhorn cattle have been introduced in the summer months to munch through bracken, bramble and nettles and so create the conditions required for a wildflower meadow.
