********************************************** ************************

Once we had breakfast in the "Bed and Breakfast" where we were staying, we started the day back to Victoria Station, but this time we only went along Buckingham Palace Street until we come to Eccleston St, which we will take to the left as we go and we will not let go until we reach the Belgrave Square Garden, where we take Pont Street to our left, until its end coinciding with the Church of Saint Columba's, where a few meters ahead we turn right onto Walton Street until we come across the shut up Hans that we will take to the left and will take us to the great Brompton with the corner of Harrods Warehouses, our first stop, the most spectacular is its exterior view, the interior is like any large warehouse in any city.

We take the Brompton Street and we go to the Oratory of the same name, to continue also in front of the Victoria and Albert Museum, which we will not enter today and we have two other museums to enter as a target.

A few meters further on we arrive at the Museum of Natural Sciences to which we will enter, free admission. Every day from 10:00 a.m. to 5:50 p.m. In this museum you can use all the time you want, there are enough rooms to visit and see that you could take the whole day, we with a couple of hours will be enough.
As soon as we leave this we go back a little to take Exhibition Street and a few meters ahead we have the entrance to the Science Museum, free admission. Every day from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. It is also a museum where you could take the whole morning, impressive new and old technologies mixed.

The two museums are ideal for all audiences and especially if it is done with children they will love it.

We return to Exhibition Street and continue through it until we reach one of the Hyde Park entrances, what we have left of the afternoon we will go through this mythical park of 1638.
We will enter through the Alexandra gate and turn left on a circular route, the first to stumble will be the Albert Memorial, ostentatious monument that Queen Victoria inaugurated in her husband's name, from here we continue the journey and in the corner Flower Walk there is a kiosko where they offer the typical puppies with many varieties was the time of the meal.

We continued to the Kensington Palace, which was not open to the public when we went but yes, its gardens which is free to visit small but very cuckoos, recommended.
At the exit we are in front of the Round Pond (a round pond), there is no balustrade and the water reaches the ground where we move, we moved a little and it was the ideal time to take a nap in the dense lawn. surrounds

After a pleasant nap we go to the Long Water where on the left the paths that lead you to the statue of Peter Pan, the relevant photos and continue to the Italian Gardens, to go around and return by the "The Long Water" on the other side and cross the only bridge that crosses it and be able to access the Serpentine Gallery (modernist).

From here we go back over the bridge and continue along the great Serpentine lake on the other side until we reach Hyde Park Corner, where we leave the park, go down to have a look at the subway and continue on the Grosvenor PI that will take us to the Victoria, where we already know how to get to our Bed and Breakfast area.
