Hyde Park, London
Categories: Gardens, Nature & Parks
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 this park. Hyde Park is what makes London, London. On a summer's day, it's great to picnic with friends. Great place for a run or cycle. I love the Serpentine and just watching people having a relaxing time.
Fantastic park. One of the best. Great playgrounds, boats on the lake, cycle paths. The rose garden is stunning.
Great place for a gentle stroll around the lake. Cafes, boats for hire, works of art, wildlife and lots of dogs to admire. Well worth spending a few hours here.
really lovely place for a long walk and some peace and quiet. the area around the lake is awesome... and you ban buy duck feed from one of the souvenir lake-side shops. if you spot deck chairs, just keep in mind that there is a tiny charge for 1 hour of use. if the weather is right it's an extremely relaxing experience
