Not That Big - GO!
Jun 2021
Wonderful. i went in the summer, even cool then, lots of flowers and many magnificent gardens. A palace on one end, Diana's playground in the middle, access on the south end to the street with Victoria and Albert Museum. The Best.

You could spend days here!
May 2021
Not only is Hyde Park enormous (nearly 350 acres), but it is varied (parkland, woodland, lake) and has many monuments and buildings (even the police horse stables!) dotted around it. It is a Site of Metropolitan Importance for Nature Conservation. Yes, you could spend 2-3 hours wandering around - or you could spend days! In fact, it is so big that you could go to four different tube stations (Hyde Park Corner, South Kensington, Marble Arch and Queensway) to start your visits and you would not even know that it was the same park!

Don't hide, get to the Hyde
Jun 2021
If ever in London - get to the Hyde Park. You will always find some part of it ever changing, evolving in positive ways. Walk, sit, listen, run, sing, eat, have a nap - Hyde park is perfect for all. Go. Now :)

Never gets old really
Jun 2021 • Couples
Hyde Park right now is absolutely buzzing! The sun is shining & the weather is sweet!!! People are dancing to music, skating to music, chilling on the grass, paddling in the pool, chilling at the roof top bar, cycling around the park etc. It’s such a lovely vibe considering we’ve been locked down for so long!

Lovely spacious park
Jun 2021
We visited Hyde Park / Kensington gardens in conjunction with another place we were visiting. We walked for a couple of hours , from edge to edge. It was a very hot day but there is plenty of trees to provide shaded from the sun if you are happy to sit on the grass. various park benches scattered about but mostly were in the sun. The park is very nice to walk about and surprisingly quiet. Very relaxing with people sunbathing, having picnics. A small number of refreshment kiosks and the odd small cafe with limited shade . Long walks between toilets especially when you find them closed or for children only. Princess Diana Memorial Fountain was closed. Boy and Dolphin Fountain not on. Signposting to the various 'attractions' could be improved. Still a great place to visit though as part of a day out.

A ride around Hyde
May 2021
What is commonly referred to as Hyde Park actually consists of Hyde Park to the east of the Serpentine, a large lake, and Kensington Gardens, which lies to its west. The park was the setting for our bike ride on a sunny bank holiday Monday afternoon. My girlfriend and I rented a couple of Sadiq cycles from the docking station at the Queensway entrance to the park and took in the sights, including Kensington Palace, currently closed to the public and locked away behind its black and gold iron gates, and Speaker’s Corner, which was empty of speakers attempting to convert the masses when we were there. We stopped to soak up some sun at the edge of Round Pond (actually a 7-acre lake), where there was a nice cool breeze coming off the water, however unfortunately no swans or geese were to be seen. Continuing our cycle eastwards, we came across a big salsa party, with lots of dancers shaking their stuff to Latin American rhythms, and then a long parade of roller skaters, sashaying along the walkway. The eastern part of the park was packed with people and social distancing measures seemed to be a thing of the past. We took another pitstop at a café near Speaker’s Corner to treat ourselves to a 99 ice cream each and by the time we finished eating those, it was starting to get chilly so we began the ride back to the docking station to call it a day.

Hyde Park is a beautiful green oasis right in the centre of town. It particularly sparkles when the sun is shining and is a great location whether you’re looking for recreation or relaxation so pay it a visit.

Afternoon visit
May 2021
Haven't been to the park for a number of years and was looking forward to visiting again . The park seems to be looking a bit tired now and the litter was shocking . Surely someone can be employed to walk round and clear the mess . It would vastly improve the experience of wandering through . The day wasn't helped by the presence of some ridiculous anti covid demonstration using the park as a lavatory , the Met police should of been dealing with that.

Lovely park, clean and easy to access.
May 2021 • Family
I really like this park. Since we have our little baby boy, we are coming over here pretty often, as we live just near by and each time we having such a great walk. Its great that food and drinks are available all over the place as well. The whole park is always very clean and well maintained.

Regent's Park wilder 'counterpark'
May 2021
One of London's very famous and massive parks, all fitted with an Italian garden and a statue of Peter Pan. Perhaps a little controversially though, I think I prefer Regent's Park! Perhaps my experience of Hyde Park was ruined a bit by the pesky rain that started to fall, so while trying to clutch my umbrella and not poke someone's eye out, I wasn't able to properly appreciate the park. Hyde Park is a little more wild compared with Regent's Park; the grass has been allowed to grow very high in some places; possible because the ground dips quite steeply in places. My favourite part of Hyde Park when walking along the outer edge of the park was the smell of hay due to the horse riding lessons that happen around the park.
