Hyde Park, London

(12,000+ reviews on the web)
Garden
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. Put Hyde Park on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our London trip itinerary maker.

  • The Hyde Park invites not only unique visitors to enjoy nature and the Sun. But fortunately, the Park is so big! We have spent the first warm weekend in London and went with friends in the Hyde Park. We had the feeling that London had the same thought. Despite of many people, the Park visit was relaxing! Who needs a toilet that needs change and this exactly, because no change can be given. Or take a wait in purchase and enters the bistros on the toilet. Of course, the Hyde Park is ideal for picnic! Therefore just previously in a supermarket and it's go! I will schedule, such as every visit to London.

  • Fun place to plan a picnic or just to spend time with the family. Would recommend paddle boating on Serpentine Lake with friends or family, but make sure to go when it is not too busy as the line can ...  more »

  • I had a lovely afternoon with my friends in the park. Had a nice walk till' the first rent a bike point. After finding this point the real adventure started. We had a nice ride in the park. The park is amazing especially, because you don't feel the busy vibe of London. I would really recommend a walk in the park to everyone who's passing by.
  • Beautiful Park, with great amount of space to walk around and have conversations or just lie down on a hot summers day. The park can get too busy as it is quite central and is a vocal point for tourists. The river is beautiful and can paddle down with friends and family. Overall 4/5 the only downfall except for the huge crowds that it doesn't have any playground area for small children. Seeing as this is a very popular and renowned park I thought it would facilitate for all.
  • Lovely park. Plenty of things to do there. Playgrounds for those with children, boat hire. Nice Peter Pan statue. Lovely Princess Diana Memorial Fountain. Definitely worth to go there.
  • I love this park. One of the most wonderful I have seen. Very big, good for a walk or to ride a bike
  • My local 😍 love it. Riding through it to work is amazing. I wish they would put the santander bikes back at the main gate though.
