Hyde Park, London

#1 of 4,439 in Parks in England
Park · Nature / Park
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.

  • I love Hyde Park. It's great for a casual walk or cycle ride, and is also good for a full-out run or even roller skating. It's a massive park and has lots of points of historical and cultural...  more »
  • A simply adorable way to spend an afternoon in London to escape the noise and hundrum. It's remarkable how quickly you can transition from stress to chill in this greenspace.  more »
  • After traveling to so many places in the last 3 years it was great to be back at Hyde park. I enjoyed just sitting on a blanket watching people go it was so peaceful  more »
  • Visited for Winter Wonderland, the park had a nice atmosphere and was easy to navigate through. Winter wonderland itself was busy as expected however lines were not excessively long and there was sufficient room to do many things. The prices are quite high but in an event that’s within central London, it’s quite expected.
  • Brilliant! I walked around the park for hours and enjoyed the nature, fresh air, birds, and squirrels crawling on people's arms. It was a little bit cold but luckily no rain but sunshine all day I really enjoyed the park. It is quite big but in about couple hours I managed to walk from both ends.
  • Such a beautiful, peaceful and romantic place.. Right out of a novel. Could sit here for hours reading a book, watching the birds or just a nice walk. It's a great place for a good run. Best to walk through Hyde Park to reaching other close by tourists destinations like Buckingham
  • Visited here for the winter wonderland. Just amazing time for an adrenaline rush. Super duper fun rides, thrilling rides, lots of food.. But not to forget the biting chill weather! 🥶Well that's what the name suggests. WINTER wonderland!
  • Well maintained park.. Its an amazing place to spend time with family. Lush green park with lots of activities. The lakes span across the park is beautiful and the swans make it more interesting to watch alongside. Close proximity to many of the Londons iconic attractions makes it easily accessible. The kids area is a fantastic place for kids to spend time.
