Create an itinerary including Hyde Park
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. See Hyde Park and all London has to offer by arranging your trip with our London planner.

  • great for a walk, dog walking, take the family, have a picnic. Easy to get to, as there are tube stations close by.

  • Amazing park if you want to see some squirrels! The park is really huge so don't underestimate the distance to cross from one side of the park to the other. There are plenty of activities to do in the park, it's a great place to bring young children. There is a beautiful lake as well, with ducks.
  • A beautiful place to be especially in Summers. This huge park is a great place to go with family, friends or just by yourself. It has a lot of cafes, playgrounds, cycle tracks and boating as well! It can get a bit crowded on weekends and on sunny days.
  • Loved this visit. We enjoyed a pleasant afternoon stroll. The weather was pleasant and the park was nicely busy. Visitors were bathing, running, playing or like us just enjoying a walk. There were a small number of refreshment cabins which were reasonably priced. Deck chairs could be hired as well as pedalos. Worth a visit if you have never been there before.
  • Excellent park! Huge, with lots of things to see and do. Lots of space available, in spite of its popularity and how busy it was, even on a weekday morning. Cycle paths (with bicycle hire available), picnic on the grass areas is possible, larger lake with many ducks, geese and swans. Horse riding tracks, and even a trough. Lots of little memorials and gardens dotted about. Cafes, with toilets, to rest and replenish at. I still have several more attractions and areas to explore there. A great place to relax and spend a few hours, or even pass the day. Whether it's by yourself, with a pet, a loved one, the family or friends. We were fortunate to have a great weather that morning. Ps. You might be lucky to catch the army training their soldiers to ride there some time like we did.
  • Simply beautiful. This park is enormous and has so many things to see and do. I have really enjoyed wandering through here and admiring the picturesque scenery and wildlife. Day or night this park is beautiful. I even had a close encounter with a curious squirrel.
