Hyde Park is a green sanctuary in the middle of London that features peaceful spots for resting and rejuvenating venues for concerts and performances of a world-class calibre. The famous Rotton Row horse-riding area and the Serpentine Lake, home to ducks and oarsmen, are two of the most well-known features of the large royal park.
Things to See
Spanning 350 acres, it is home to more than 400 trees and a large lake. The Diana Memorial Fountain, which is a sculpture made up of 545 individual pieces of granite and is dedicated to the late Princess of Wales, is the first stop on the landmark’s path within the park. Another must-see site in the park is the Speakers’ Corner, which is the location where public lectures and debates were held by notable figures such as George Orwell, Vladimir Lenin, and Karl Marx.
Visitors are welcome to use the tennis and sports centre’s football and putting greens and the lawn bowls area. Visitors can also relax at one of the many waterside cafes and enjoy the natural beauty of the area.
In addition, during the course of the year, Hyde Park plays home to various festivals and other large-scale events, the most notable of which is Winter Wonderland, which has a gigantic observation wheel, and an ice skating rink.
