With a history dating back to the 1500s, the Hyde Park is one of the oldest and largest parks in central London. An oasis of tranquility, on the north-east side of the park is Speakers' Corner , a traditional haven of free speech. The Serpentine Lido (a designated swimming area of the Serpentine Lake) and the Serpentine Gallery are famous tourist spots. Many visitors to the park choose to see the Isis statue or to sunbathe near Diana Fountain or simply dip their feet into the water. There is also a memorial site in the south-east corner of the park to commemorate the July 7, 2005 bombings in London. Head a little more south, and you will find yourself in the midst of the Rose Garden between Serpentine Road and Rotten Row. If you are feeling like fitting some activity into your visit, head on over to the Hyde Park Tennis and Sports Centre, which is open to all. Overall, it's a fantastic place to spend the day and a must-visit during your sojourn in London.
