Hyde park is one of Central London's largest parks. One of the Royal Parks, it's 350 acres straddle each side of the Serpentine, a 28 acre lake. Hyde Park is also contiguous with the 275 acre Kensington Gardens resulting in a combined total of 625 beautiful acres. It was the home of the famous Great Exhibition of 1851, the first in a series of World's Fairs.

There is something for everyone in this large park which features a variety of landscapes and activities. Some of the many attractions in the park include Hyde Park Corner with its large stone arch gateway, a rose garden, a wildlife meadow, the Serpentine and Long Water Lakes, the Serpentine Bridge, children's playgrounds, tennis courts, several memorials and memorial gardens, and the famous Speaker's Corner. Seasonal peddle boat rentals and boat rides are available on the Serpentine.

When you get hunger pangs the park has numerous refreshment points serving coffee, sandwiches and other light fare and it also has some good restaurants and bars.
