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.

Hyde Park is a must to see while staying in London. It is just the another half of Kensington Gardens. It is very peaceful and so relaxing to take a walk there.

Had an amazing day! We really enjoyed renting a paddle boat. Lots of nice views and places to walk. So many swans! Which I absolutely LOVE! And they had a black swan which was amazing.
So much green space, right in the heart of London, Serpentine is fabulous and the walks are kept clean and very welcoming, the mound at Marble Arch is lovely and gives you a birds eye view of the surrounding landscape for miles on a clear day. Speakers corner entertaining but can be threatening with many preaching the only way in life is to be Muslim, lots of jostling between different people with different views, uncomfortable at times.
