  • Interesting human debates. A people gathering of all kinds looking for a place to be heard. Not all are single contributors, some with organisation behind them  more »
  • The Speaker's Corner in the north west part of Hyde Park is great to see. There is no set schedule, so you could be unlucky, but usually there are several speakers, each with their own audience. Mingl...  more »
  • This is at the corner of Hyde Park close to Marble Arch and is normally full of speakers on weekends. It is an open-air space for people to express themselves freely without being prosecuted. Worth a ...  more »

  • Speakers' Corner is located at northeast corner of Hyde Park by Marble Arch. Since 1872, Londoners can lawfully make speeches on Sunday to anyone who will listen and this tradition still lives on encouraging public discourse and spirited social engagement. You can walk around the park and listen to the speakers in.
  • Good idea and place. Historical place, public speaking area for anyone to express their thoughts and offload :) tourist attraction in Hyde Park.
  • Went over the weekend as suggested but no one was speaking! I guess it's a run of the draw type place? Was disappointed because I've been wanting to go and listen forever! Where are all the London protesters?? Darn social media, lol!
  • A little subdued on a cold, rainy, windy day; might be more fun in pleasant weather.
  • One of the most famous London's place where anyone could say anything and will have audience. It's so British.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
