The Round Pond
This is where hellraiser Oliver Reed once had a fight and lost
Location: Kensington Gardens, Kensington, W2
Description: This is also where actor and general hellraiser Oliver Reed once had a fight and lost.
Film producer Michael Winner said I remember once I met him in a restaurant and he went out and challenged someone to a fight; he was always doing that, and he always lost the fight. So he went out into Hyde Park in a beautiful Savile Row suit to fight this bloke and came back having been thrown in the round pond, he was soaking.
