5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

London is a city you can say located within the parks. Hyde Park is a true example of a civilized country

“Go boating.....if you have a fat wallet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Went there for a walk and sit down while on a day out. Deck chairs available for £1.50/hr, £7.50 for the day. Not bad but pricey if a few of you. The park seemed to have quite a bit of rubbish on he grass areas but noticed hardly any bins. The lake is great but o enjoy it to its max, it's going to cost out. To rent a pedalo or a boat you need deep pockets and long arms. Basically, £29 for four people you use either for one hour. That put me right off. I know London is expensive but didn't count on it being that expensive. However I did notice not one English person in the queue. From the accents and languages spoken it was full of foreign tourists. Nothing like ripping off visitors but then no one is forcing them to pay. And nearly £3 for a cup of tea. Walk one minute out the park and get one from Costa/Starbucks for half the price. If you just want to relax in the sun, great. If you want to do some activities, drink and eat, make sure you do some overtime before you go.

“Very large open space, great for a walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Assuming you're not already worn out from walking around London, then Hyde Park is a very large open space with mostly grassy expanses, few floral parts, lots of established trees, a big lake with water foul and even an enclosed kids play ground. If your kids need to run, kick a ball, fly a kite, chase pigeons, etc. then this is the place to go in London. It is adjacent to Kensington Gardens with its Diana Memorial Playground (fantastic place). The Albert Memorial is here too plus a number of fancy wrought iron gates and stone masonry arches celebrating various people/events. If you're on a bike, then note that some of the pathways are pedestrian only.

“Sunny in hyde Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Walking through Hyde Park - was a hot summers day. The squirrels were friendly to us coming forward to say hello. We saw a pelican and lots of wildlife. Sat in the sunshine with ice cream and a waffle with ice cream. Not cheap but average for London

“You Could Spend All Day Here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Obviously decent weather helps, but there is something for everyone in Hyde Park. Enjoyed a lovely Saturday strolling through the park, visiting the Princess Diana memorial, having lunch al fresco at the Lido and watching people swimming, running, rollerblading, cycling, horse riding, sitting in the sun or boating on the Serpentine. There is also a great playground for those with smaller children. You can take advantage of the various refreshment stands scattered throughout or keep the cost down and take your own. Great day out. So lucky to be a Londoner!
