Hyde Park Tips (187)

Hyde Park

Hyde Park provides facilities for many different leisure activities and sports as well as being the focal point for public events of all sizes. There is ofetn large concerts or political rallies (eg .Iraq war protest) which occur in Hyde park.
When i used to live in London and miss home i would often walk in hyde park listening to me music or sit down under a tree.
Every now and then you would be visited by squirels and it was cool just to look at them play as if they didnt have a care in the world.

Lido at Hyde Park

If you come to London in the summer and fancy a swim make your way to the Serpentine in Hyde Park. It cost £3 june- aug daily 10am-6pm.

There's changing areas and a small pool but you can also swim in the serpentine - its a area marked off so don't swim in any other part of the serpentine.

Skate the streets

if you have your own skates (or can hire some) then go to Hyde Park on a Wednesday evening during Spring and Summer and join the streetskate. If you can stop on skates then give it a whirl - it's the best adrenalin rush I've ever had in London. Learn to stop before you go on it (I made that mistake once and still feel terrible about parked car's wing mirrors!)

There's also a Friday night skate that I haven't braved as apparently it's quite a bit faster.

Australian War Memorial

This is a must see for all Australians. It is a gentle curve of sculptured granite, emobossed with the names of the theatre of war where Australians have fought alongside the British. Amongst them are the names of all the towns from which the soldiers came from in Australia. It is a truly appropriate and sloemn memorial to those who fought to preserve our way of life.

Hyde Park

In the center of London is Hyde Park, much like that of Central Park in New York City. Nice place to take a break from dealing with the city all day. It has ponds and ducks if you want to bring some bread crumbs with you.

Hyde Park

This park is London's largest open space. There's a lake filled with ducks that play with each other and lots of green grass ... where I layed down for a while watching the birds and the people passing by... very relaxing!

HYDE PARK: not only resting

Hyde Park offers a range of leisure activities from informal games of frisbee through to boating on The Serpentine and horse riding.

Most pitch-based sports activity tends to take place on the southern section of the Park between Rotten Row and South Carriage Drive. This area, known as 'The Sports Field' is used extensively for informal games of football, touch rugby, cricket, softball, rounders and frisbee.

Cycling (and related activities such as roller-blading and skateboarding) is allowed on all roads and specially designated cycle tracks in the Park.

The paths and grass areas in Hyde Park are also used extensively for walking, jogging and running.

The Serpentine Lido and its accompanying paddling pool are great for both adults and children. With its waterside tables, it is the ideal place to enjoy a snack, meal or a glass of wine. For swimming, off peak and concession rates for people on low incomes are available as well as reductions for children.

The Hyde Park Tennis & Sports Centre
is located at the western end of the Sports Field at the junction between West Carriage Drive and South Carriage Drive.

The Centre provides high quality tennis facilities, and is accredited by the Lawn Tennis Association. People are encouraged to 'turn up and play' while, for regular players, a range of membership options are available. Coaching courses are run for children and for adults. Tournaments are organised and teams can also play in local tennis leagues.

The bowling green (or an individual rink) is available to individuals, families, groups of friends or established clubs to hire on request and can be pre-booked.

The Centre also has a challenging and well maintained putting course, popular with both groups and families.

HYDE PARK: a poetic moment

how I love to take this kind of pictures!
How I love to play with the sunlight in my digital camera!
See my World Sunset in my homepage to know more about my passion or maybe illness for this kind of natural shows.
I was sitting by the Serpentine watching, since at least half an hour, trying to find something particular to take a picture of, when I finally have risen my eyes to the sky and I saw this wonderful spectacle, with the sun fighting to pass through those dark clouds, that were not in the mood to "cry", lucky me.

HYDE PARK. A wonderful place...

Hyde Park.

The biggest park I've ever seen inside a town.
Sometimes it is difficult to remember you are still in London, it seems to you to be in the wilderness.

London is a big city so everywhere you may find a lot of people but this place is so big that you can relax in solitude wherever you want

A wonderful place to rest, beautiful and well maintained.

HYDE PARK: The Serpentine

Every respectful park has a lake carved inside, and Hyde Park has the Serpentine.
And the Serpentine is an hell of a lake!
It is huge! Many boats sailing its surface, a bridge in the distance, so many gulls fly over it and a great, deserved, peaceful sensation permeating the visitor, tipically sat with a coffee cup in front of the dying sun, tired of long walks up and down the tube and the town.

HYDE PARK: the story

Previously used for the delight of the kings, including Henry VIII, who loved hunting wild boars and deers in its wilderness, Hyde Park has been years or maybe centuries later developed and transformed by tai-chi artists into this lovely and peaceful place.
The park is crowded with people at all times (it is open daily from 5.30 AM to midnight, through the whole year) but it is so large that the visitor is never disturbed by the others, and can enjoy the peace.

Hyde Park is one of London's finest landscapes and covers 140 hectares (350 acres). Hyde Park provides facilities for many different leisure activities and sports as well as being the focal point for public events of all sizes.
Among the most pleasant places in London, it gives the visitor the chance to rest, far from the crowd, the traffic and the noise, pretending to be in the wilderness, thanks to its huge size
