Holland Park is a tranquil haven in the vibrant and bustling capital. The beautiful Kyoto Garden, donated by the Chamber of Commerce of Kyoto in 1991, is the perfect place to picnic, with interesting water features and exotic plants and trees. There’s also regular events for adults and children alike to get involved with ecology and nature conservation. Portobello Market is still a great place to go for vintage finds, great street food and a lively atmosphere, but the lesser known Golborne Road Market at the northern end of Portobello Market has stalls covering much of the same, only with less crowds. Don’t miss the weekend stalls, full of second hand treasures.
