    Wide Open Space
    Hyde Park is one of the Royal Parks of London and is a glorious place to visit after the hustle and bustle of a big city. There are plenty of paths to walk, run or cycle along. There are also places you can ride your horse. Plenty of benches to sit and admire the view or just people watch. If you need to de-stress after a day exploring the city then I cannot recommend anywhere better!

    A place for all
    The major central park in London. Plenty of running tracks, sculptures and things to do it is indeed for All Creatures Great and Small. Marble Arch and Speakers Corner at one End, Kensington Gardens and Palace at the other. A jewel in the crown

    Beautiful park
    We visited London for three days and made it a point to walk through Hyde Park every day because it was so beautiful. People everywhere walking, running, riding bikes, playing games or just laying in the grass. Such a beautiful green space in the city.

    Many things to see in Hyde Park
    More to do in Hyde Park than I expected. We spent some time walking around the park and it’s many attractions. Kensington Palace, Price Albert Memorial, Royal Albert Hall and Serpentine Lake. But I was pleasantly surprised at the Princess Diana Memorial Fountain. Absolutely beautiful, unusual and tasteful. So glad we took the time to see what this park had to offer.

    Nice place to run
    Checked out the park when I had a free day and came back a few more times during the trip for leisure and to site-see. It’s a great place to go to if you just want to relax for the day, workout, or grab food/coffee. It’s very quiet, despite how many people frequent the park. Wish I could’ve come here everyday.

    An oasis in London, must visit.
    Go! There's stuff for everyone. Huge spaces to bike, jog, or just amble along. There are tons of ducks and geese, a huge Lake to do boating, and a whole lot of manicured flower beds and statues. It is so big that even the weekend before the coronation, you can find many quiet spits to sit and get away from it all. Do take a moment to visit Speaker's Corner, a lot of history there.

    Great Park but We Did Not Get to See as Mush as We Wanted
    Hyde Park is a tremendous park in the west end of London that runs from Buckingham Palace to Kensington Palace, so it has some royal connections. Unfortunately, in December we did not get to see as much as we wanted, like the Diana Memorial, due to a cold rain. With that said we did get to see some of the highlights like the duck pond and Kensington Palace. It is nice to have a green space like this in the city.

    Lovely Park - Great Walk
    Lovely, well used park. Highly recommend for walk, rest, duck watching (wonderful ponds), picnic. Also children's play area. Easy to get snacks in the park of close by. Do it!

    Beautiful, as always
    Came here recently after what feels like a long time with friends. It's a beautiful open green space, the perfect place to visit during the sunnier months! Highly recommend if you haven't visited, or if you have!

    Huge Open Space
    I walked from the Marble Arch through to Serpentine Lake. The northern part is mostly dry grass and unattractive, though it gets better the closer you get to the lake. The place is huge and spread out, so anyone can have quite a bit of privacy wherever you end up. There are chair rentals throughout the park, and the day we visited, many people were taking advantage of the fine weather. There is ongoing construction of some sort going on, so keep to the area around the lake which is more appealing.

A large park, great for a walk. Certainly not one of the prettier Hyde Parks we’ve visited, but wonderful to have so much green space amid the hustle and bustle of London.

Amazing place to visit when you need a bit of green treatment after a long day. The royal park is glorious, and it has plenty of paths to walk around, run or cycle. You can even ride a hourse here

This is a stunning park with a lovely boat house and lake. The little coffee shacks are superb and reasonably priced about £3.70 a latte. The princess Diana memorial is lovely and very serene. I had a lovely walk about 6 miles. Was great enjoyed it

We had a walk through Hyde Park actually just by chance - we were actually looking for some public toilets (which we found). Walking through the park we saw loads of people on roller skates dancing to music and having a great time, including a man dressed as superman. We had a nice time and a relaxed walk through the park.

Hyde Park Hyde is central London's largest green space and covers 350 acres. There are no hills, and plenty of paths and well-signaled walkways and maps. Walking the perimeter takes about 90 minutes, and it's so vast that there are plenty of spots to set down and take a break. Don´t miss Speakers `Corner!

Decided to explore the whole of Hyde Park and 6 miles later was exhausted (door to door!). Thought it was great and loved the walk seeing lots of statues and landmarks with Kensington Palace being the turning point. If you go to London spend time here if and if you are fit enough walk round it all. 👍

PROS
* World famous massive London Park
* Something for everyone to do

CONS
The main pathways seem to be always crowded

“I VISITED THIS PLACE”…
… as part of my quest, to see everything possible in London, and this is sure a famous place. I walked through it once and I rode my bicycle through it once. There were a lot of people in the main walkways all the time and everywhere.

WAS IT WORTH IT?
Sure-it’s free

WOULD I DO THIS AGAIN?
sure – I’ll probably end up here again on my next visit

ADVICE
Go and enjoy, but expect crowds on the main pathways, and that means walkers, strollers, bicyclists and joggers

It was lovely that time of year.

A lot to do, so many people around. Also a lovely place to have a picnic.
Worth a visit and since it is a few feet from the palace, why not
