Hyde Park, London
(4.6/5 based on 11,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Me and my wife were having a long weekend away in London. I had stayed near Hyde Park before and this time we were staying in the Cumberland Hotel at Marble Arch. After a long day crammed in tubes and...  more »
  • I recommend a walk in this park, any time of year. Especially on Sunday: a lot of people and dogs use this park. 
  • A real breath of fresh air, it does not seem absolutely staying in a metropolis. The contact with nature is gorgeous and the experience of being so close to the squirrels that come to take food from hands is fantastic. One could spend entire days to chase all animals present. Beautiful!

  • Wonderful place where to escape from the busy of the city and where to have a solitary walk even not being alone, but surrounded by beautiful people with the same needs.. Amazing nature views and wonderful sunsets on lake! Funny animals surround your peaceful stay and bring a lot of peace into your own mind and heart!
  • Nice big Park in a hustle bustle city. You are able to get coffee increase light snacks etc, hire a pedalo. There is a small but beautiful childrens playground that has soft floor surfaces and a good arrangement of equipment. The park is a short work from Harrods and is a nice break from the busy city.
  • Beautiful place to visit at the end of October. Trees are spectacular, not many people, lake is stunning. Diana memorial water feature worth a visit, and various galleries to see. Expensive to eat round here though - grab a coffee but eat elsewhere!
  • Another if London beautiful parks, lots of walkways and places to see such as The Serpentine, the serpentine gallery, and little cafes on the side of the lake. Good for running with lots of ways to vary your route and nice to get away from the madness of Oxford Street.
  • This is a lovely park, it's amazing how big it is. Especially when you think it's in the centre of London. Lots of space for the kids to run around and it is really close to the science and natural history museums. Food and drink from the vendors is ridiculously overpriced though.
