Hyde Park & Kensington Gardens
An oasis of tranquility in central London, Hyde Park, together with Kensington Gardens to the west, is the largest of the three royal parks. On the north-east side is Speaker's Corner , a traditional haven of free speech. The Serpentine boating lake, complete with a designated swimming area, and the Serpentine Gallery is a famous tourist spot. The Albert Memorial and the statue of the mischievous character Peter Pan is housed at the Kensington Gardens also attract a crowd. Separated by the stately Serpentine Bridge, many visitors to the park choose to sunbathe near Diana Fountain or simply dip their feet into the water. A great place to spend the afternoon.
Hyde Park is one of the most beautiful parks in London, a wonderful atmosphere with nice green grass, a stream, wildlife, and interesting people. Make sure you bring a blanket or chairs, you have to pay to sit in the chairs they have there. The only thing I didnt like about it was having to leave it!
Went to the kensington gardens first thing in the morning. its very beautiful and very very big! saw people walking their dogs, children flying kites, playing on the grass, family picnics, people jogging pass with their mini ipods, people cycling with their dogs or rollerblading... you can just seat on the bench and peoplewatch here.. everybody looks really relaxed and just contented.. there's also a huge pond where there's many ducks, pigeons, swans and seagulls resting or waiting for someone to feed them.. the dogs loved to chase them around!
didn't really walk to the hyde park as the park was really huge and we gotta go to another place... but i will surely be here the next time i visit the beautiful london!
Hyde Park is a gorgeous park. I believe now that all parks should follow the model of this one. Very laid back and friendly, Hyde Park is somewhere I could spend all day in and can kick back and enjoy the scenery. I look back on my trip to London with great fondness, especially while I was walking through this park.
Hyde park is nothing like the parks here in America. This park has everything to relax you and entertain you. I'm not much of a "park person" but if you invite me to another park like this one I wouldn't deny your invitation! Also, there is a Peter Pan statue, which I'm guessing thats why they filmed Finding Neverland there. Try finding the seat or area where Johnny Depp sat. We did. The park expands for miles & miles of beautiful scenery. All green and full of huge trees. The princess Di memorial is also here. I saw it from afar but I saw pictures of it and it is truly remarkable. I would definitely love to go back after a long day!
