The largest of royal parks and an oasis of calm in the heart of London, Hyde Park, is a timeless classic. The site of many historic events, from suffragette speeches to Rolling Stones concerts, the park’s nickname, “The People’s Park,” is well-deserved.
Book yourself the perfect Hyde Park accommodation and enjoy your time by the serene Serpentine Lake. If you’re looking for something more active, you can even rent a rowboat on the lake, or go for a walk on one of the many paths that wind through the park. If you’re looking for a more peaceful setting, head to the north of the park, where you’ll find meadows and a ravishing rose garden. No visit to Hyde Park would be complete without a stop at Speaker’s Corner. It’s a designated area where anyone can stand and speak their mind, so you can explore that too, without spending a penny!
So, give the credit/debit card a break and experience some of the best of what London has to offer with your loved ones.
