Holland Park

Category: Parks and Open spaces

Holland Park is a district and a public park in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, in west central London in England. It is not a formal political subdivision.

The district was rural until the 19th century. Most of it was formerly the grounds of a Jacobean mansion called Holland House. In the later decades of that century the owners of the house sold off the more outlying parts of its grounds for residential development, and the district which evolved took its name from the house. It also included some small areas around the fringes which had never been part of the grounds of Holland House, notably the Phillimore Estate (there are at least four roads with the word Phillimore in their name) and the Campden Hill Square area.
