Things to do in
A focal point for local Londoners, there's a lot to see in the park all year
Our owner Shy lived in London off and on for a number of years and lists Hyde Park as one of his favourite spots in the city. It's a good size and full of trees, urban wildlife, and local people just looking to escape the bustle of the city! In the summer months, if there's even a glimmer of good weather, you'll find locals enjoying some BBQ or time with friends, there's a fair each winter, and an ever evolving set of concerts and festivals to be enjoyed.
On Sundays, the northeastern tip of the park hosts Speaker's Corner, an interesting if intense place to see people really speak their minds on an issue. The borders of the park feature a number of monuments, including the Princess Diana Memorial, Kensington Palace, and historic water features such as the Serpentine.
Situated more or less in the city's centre, the park is reasonably large and enjoys foot access, bicycle paths, horse riding trails, and, of course, plenty of options for taking the Tube. Bayswater or Lancaster Gate to the north, Marble Arch or on the northeastern corner, Hyde Park corner for the southeast and Park Lane, Knightsbridge on the south. If you're happy to enjoy a short walk, Notting Hill Gate enters from the northwest while High Street Kensington provides access via the southwest corner.
