Hyde Park Hostel London is conveniently situated merely steps from Kensington Gardens. This large park is home to the Princess Diana memorial fountain and the Round Pond. It was at the Round Pond that J. M. Barrie, whilst walking his dog, met Jack Llewellyn Davies in 1904: the boy who gave him the inspiration for the character Peter Pan. You can also see a Peter Pan statue in the park, which was installed overnight in 1912, because the author wanted children to believe it had appeared by magic.
