Walk from Holland Park to Horse Guards Parade Linear

This was a combined walk with Polyramblers and a club called Kaleidoscope.

It was a beautiful sunny day for a stroll through Holland Park stopping for visit to St Mary Abbots Church designed by George Gilbert Scott the most famous and sought-after architect of his day. A few of the Polyramblers diverted off towards Kensington High Street at  this point but managed to retrace their steps in time to see the church!

We resumed our walk-through Hyde Park the largest of the four Royal Parks home to a number of fascinating buildings and monuments including the Serpentine Bridge and the famous Achilles Statue. We stopped at the iconic New Zealand War Memorial to the war dead of New Zealand in the first and Second World Wars.

We continued the walk to our lunch stop at St James Park before continuing to our final destination at Horse Guards Parade.
