“Would be better without gypsy site.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

The park is huge and only one corner (Hyde Park Corner) of it is anyway close to Buckingham Palace. I think the review below is mixing it up with Green Park or St James Park which are next to Buckingham Palace.

It is nice for a walk and an escape from the city and could be compared with Central Park in NY in this way.

ATM its a shame its becoming more (In)famous for the Hyde Park London Romanian gypsy site, which is a disgrace and ruining a part of the park for some visitors. Keep away from the Marble Arch part !!.

“London's Central Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It's a huge grassy area with ponds right next to Buckingham Palace. It's hectic, busy and noisy all the while being a peaceful place to relax. If you have food... watch out for the squirrels because they are very accustomed to humans and will literally try to take the food from your hands.

“Relax”

HYDE PARK is a great example on how should the Park be, its a wide green area, you can walk, play with ducks, enjoy the sun in the sunny day.

This is a very nice park, and is a very nice place to hang out on a warn summer day, and people watch, or maybe a picnic.
