Why find a property in Holland Park?

Holland Park is an elegant, leafy residential area on the western fringes of Central London.

With a number of leading independent and state primary schools on its doorstep, it is no wonder that Holland Park is also a popular destination for families.

And, of course, the real selling point of this area in West London is the park itself. It is widely considered to be one of the most peaceful and romantic parks in West London. Don your wellies and explore the semi-wild woodland to give yourself a real ‘country’ feel or transport yourself to Japan whilst taking a stroll around the beautiful Kyoto Garden; a Japanese garden donated by the Chamber of Commerce of Kyoto in 1991.

Open Spaces

The West London area of Holland Park is home to a 54 acre park of the same name, often considered to be one of the most romantic and peaceful parks of West London. Considering its proximity to central London, it is hard to imagine that you are anywhere other than in the countryside as you take a stroll through the woodland area. It also provides a large open space dedicated to sports where many local schools enjoy their annual Sports Day. There are tennis courts, a cricket pitch with practice nets and an Alice in Wonderland inspired giant chess set.

The park is also home to The Holland Park Ecology Centre, which offers education programs that include nature walks, talks and outdoor activities for children.

Nestled within the park is the Holland Park Café that serves fresh, homemade, seasonal food and is open all year round. There is indoor and outdoor seating, the latter is popular with many a serious chess player soaking up the sunshine whilst pondering their next move. You may be lucky enough to sip your coffee alongside one of the many resident peacocks; a glorious sight in this west London oasis.


Out and About

Holland Park Avenue is a bustling road that leads from Shepherd’s Bush in the west up to Notting Hill Gate and Portobello. Stop at one of the many coffee shops, lose yourself in Daunt Books or pick up some fine free-range or organic meat in the award winning Lidgate Butchers.

One of Holland Park’s hidden gems is Clarendon Cross; a small ‘village’ on the borders of Holland Park and Notting Hill, known for its pastel coloured Victorian Terraces and mélange of unique shops and businesses. Indulge your culinary desires at Summerill and Bishop, a Provencal inspired kitchen wear haven, then pop down the road to Cowshed Clarenden Cross for an indulgent pamper.
