London has many iconic sights with incredible historic back stories, ranging from Big-Ben to the London Eye, with the latter being Europe’s largest Ferris Wheel. The city is also one of the most sought after tourist destinations in the world, with a wide range of luxury accommodation to choose from such as the COMO Metropolitan London. One of the most beautiful and historic places in London is the massive Hyde Park, which is intimately entwined with London’s heritage.
Although a great many people around the world have heard of Hyde Park, or even seen it in magazines, postcards or wallpapers, they aren’t completely aware of the wide range of facilities and things to do within London’s famous green space.
One of the best places to start off exploring the expanse of Hyde Park is at the Serpentine Cafe where you can gaze upon the beautiful lake which is the namesake of the cafe. You can soak up the beautiful views of ducks and geese as they swim around the lake and dwell on the Serpentine’s banks.
Hyde Park is also connected to Kensington Gardens and Palace, which was once the home of the late Princess Diana. As a result there are many memorials around the palace for the beloved Princess. The Serpentine Gallery is also located within Kensington Gardens and showcases an incredibly collection of modern art.
You can take part in some casual sporting action at Hyde Park Sports which has a range of options available to you, where you can rent a football court, or a tennis court for a private game with friends. You can also learn horseback riding or rent a bicycle to further explore the expanse of the iconic and breath-taking beauty of Hyde Park.
The park has something for everybody regardless of whether you’re a fitness-freak or a seeker of serenity. Be sure to explore Hyde Park and her many attractions if you find yourself there.
