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 so big that often when you are walking through it you forget that you are still in London and you feel like you are on a country estate. I really like the wide paths, the large grass... more »
Visited for Winter Wonderland, the park had a nice atmosphere and was easy to navigate through. Winter wonderland itself was busy as expected however lines were not excessively long and there was sufficient room to do many things. The prices are quite high but in an event that’s within central London, it’s quite expected.
Brilliant! I walked around the park for hours and enjoyed the nature, fresh air, birds, and squirrels crawling on people's arms. It was a little bit cold but luckily no rain but sunshine all day I really enjoyed the park. It is quite big but in about couple hours I managed to walk from both ends.
