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.

Super lucky to have Greenland so big in the middle of London. After walking 5 minutes into it, you don’t feel like you’re in London anymore. Great for a walk to get some fresh air or to run round. Winter wonderland is also worth a visit at Christmas.
Any time of year . . a peaceful escape from the noise and buzz of the city. A huge park to explore plus if your driving a good place to park as some of the best museums and Royal Albert Hall nearby.
