Hyde Park, London

4.7
#1 of 3,822 in Parks in England
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.

  • Walk along the Serpentine. Ducks, coots, Coot, swans and cormorants. Of beautiful green areas left fallow in front of the residence of Lady Di.

  • Certainly the most beautiful park in London, with many things to see: a classic Park, the Kensington Palace and its Gardens, then the fountain Memorial, without forgetting the squirrels... an incredible romance!

  • As beautiful as any country park. Fabulous trees. Lovely lake. Great gardens. Perfect for fun, families, walkers and sports enthusiasts. All credit to those who maintain these amazing spaces.
  • A very nice park with good views and a soothing atmosphere. The boat rides available are definitely worth the money, especially if you go at sunset... The view is beautiful
  • Love this park. Nice and big. Love the events that go there like the winter wonderland every year! The park is green all year round! Well maintained and loads of things to do in all of Hyde park!
  • Brilliant park for all ages. The gardens are beautiful and plenty of things to do to keep children entertained. The Diana Memorial Fountain is a must in summer for children.
  • Massive park in the very centre of London. Can have a little get together with friends, can walk the dog, can have a walk around on your own, can enjoy a beer in the sun, can swim in the Serpentine if you're insane, has gigs throughout the year and Christmas markets. It's the best park in the country, or of any in any major city I've been to.

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.
