    Take a walk to Hyde park.

    Take a walk to Hyde park.
    Take a moment to listen to some of the speakers. Here you can speak out what's on your mind, except for thoughts about the royal-family. Go here and listen to all the talkers, it's fun.

    Hyde Park, together with Kensington Gardens to the west, is the largest of the three royal parks. On the north-east side is Speaker's Corner, where people are free to speak their mind. It is also famous for the Serpentine boating lake (pictured above)and Serpentine Gallery.
    Other facilities include tennis courts, refreshment complex, horse riding trail, children's play area and a cycle route. Less known is the Dogs' Cemetery at the northern end of the park - the graves commemorate more than 200 loved ones and are not morbid at all.

    A must is to walk through the Hyde Park or to relax after a shopping tour. The best thing is to lay in the sun and eat a big cup of Marshmallow Ice Cream. :-)
    A very big park with a lots of meadows to lay and relax, also great to make a lot of sport activities for example skating, jogging, soccer and biking. Also you can meet new people there, especially citizens from London.

    Hahahahahaha! Even though it was cold, I had a blast back in 1996. Here is one sight to see in the park. Was it thrown across the channel by Obelix in Normandy?

    Hyde Park is the largest park in central London, and its a great place to escape from the crowds. Just sunbathe, play frisbee, rollerblade...whatever takes your fancy!

    Gun salutes are fired here and soldiers ride through the park each morning on their way to Horse Guard’s Parade in Whitehall.

    Hyde park's nicest "entrance"

    by MedioLatino Updated Apr 4, 2011

    If something is nicer around, then the fence of the Buckingham Palace, is this gate which leads from the square in front of Buckingham to the Hyde park. Amazing details!

    In Hyde Park there is this small grove with a statue and some benches in it, a great place to sit down and read a book under the sun!

    The Serpentine is a large lake in Hyde Park. You can hire pedallos and pedal across it, and as you can see in the photo there's a restaurant nearby where you can sit and eat food by the lake.

    This is a gorgeous area of London. Some of the most pristine gardens in Europe are here. This picture is of the fountains on the side near Bayswater Road and Sussex Gardens Road

    If there is something I love about a hectic city like London is the Parks... even in winter it's a wonderful place where you can hide from noise, cars, and people.

    HYDE PARK is the largest park in central London. It used to belong to the church but has been a royal park since Henry VIII seized it in the 1530’s.
