Hyde Park, London

4.6
#1 of 4,204 in Parks in England
Sitting on 142 hectares (350 acres) in central London, Hyde Park is one of the city's largest and most attraction-rich green spaces. You'll find plenty of ways to enjoy yourself here no matter the season. Navigate the Serpentine lake by rowboat or pedal boat, or take a swim if you visit between June and September. Stop by the Diana Memorial, a fountain made of Cornish granite with water flowing down an embankment in two directions to meet in a pool at the bottom. Walk around Speakers' Corner, where luminaries such as Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, and George Orwell have given speeches, and many protests and demonstrations have taken place. Butterflies fly around in the summer and wildfowl visit in winter, and you can ride horses along two designated routes. If you plan to be in London during the first half of July, find out who's performing in the park's summer concert series. Tickets are usually in high demand, so you'll want to find out when they go on sale for any concerts you want to attend.

  • Went there on a Sunny day. It's the place to be to relax and disconnect from the city. There are too many things to visit too.  more »
  • It is a huge park, to enjoy it in the middle of London. We have been running for the at 7.00 am and it was already full of people. It is huge, full of wildlife, the sympathetic super Chipmunks. Give them a peanut... lol. in the areas of water you caught our attention the swans... Very nice, and approached to see if you feed them... At any time should make a must-see, sit and relax.

  • As beautiful as any country park. Fabulous trees. Lovely lake. Great gardens. Perfect for fun, families, walkers and sports enthusiasts. All credit to those who maintain these amazing spaces. Easy access.
  • Great green area in the heart of London. The park dates back to the beginnings of 1600 probably one of the oldest urban park in the world. Typical British park, very tidy and clear, the serpentine lake is beautiful and it's possible to rent a boat. You can relax yourself, have a picnic, there are a lot of water birds used to human presence. It's a real green lung in a metropolis. Very pleasant to stay here. Recommended a tour.
  • What can be said. It's Hyde Park. Steeped in history. Very big park in a nice part of London. Sit back and relax with a picnic or a book. Take family or friends, a football, rugby ball, cricket bat or badminton racket and enjoy some activities. Or go by yourself and take in the scenery or ponder your thoughts. The choices are endless. Car park available but pricey. Local transport on the doorstep. Facilities all around from places to eat, shops and cafes and bars. Brilliant venue for music events and outside theatre events. Is it suitable for wheelchairs yes there are paths and the lawn is well kept. Great park suitable for all.
  • Hyde Park is one the better green spaces I’ve ever been to. There’s something there for everybody. From running paths, to tanning spots, to picnic spots, it’s a great place for activities. It’s about 6 miles around the perimeter, and I enjoyed running here. It’s also relatively clean.
  • Beautiful open space, great place for a day out, picnics, rowing on the Serpentine, lots to see, search for Peter pan statue, at this time of year, look for conkers and acorns and make an Autumn display, using some of the fallen leaves and other natural things. Children can ran, scream and have a good time, leaving the technology at home for the day. Have a wonderful day.
