    Now dominated by predominantly religious speakers and not as lively or vibrant as it once was. A disappointment.  more »

    If you want to see free speech in action, this is a must on Sundays in Hyde Park. For decades, this is the place to be amazed that free speech does exist. You can just stand up and start speaking, peo...  more »

    A diverse range of speakers with a slight bias towards subjects of religion on the day we visited. It's great to see free speech on show here. All of the speakers seemed seasoned and handle hecklers v...  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.
