The Italian Gardens in Kensington Gardens were commissioned by Queen Victoria and are now often used as a movie location. You may have seen them in the 2004 film's Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and Wimbledon.
The gardens contain numerous fountains surrounded by seating areas with an old pavilion at one end, designed in the early 1800's by the Belgian architect Andre Parmentier.
Andre was born in Belgium in 1780, he moved to the United States in 1821, were he lived in Brooklyn, where he was active in horticulture with a lot of success.
The southern end of the Italian Gardens overlook part of the Serpentine in Hyde Park.
These gardens lie on the border between Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. Nearby attractions include the Diana Memorial Fountain, Serpentine Gallery, Kensington Palace, the Round Pond, Albert Memorial and Serpentine Lido.
