Introduction
Situated on Hyde Park Corner and Mayfair
in the hustling and bustling city of London,
Hyde Park is a tranquil oasis of natural
splendour and serene, everlasting vistas of
the nature that surrounds it.

Opened to the public in 1637, Hyde Park is
known as the largest of the royal parks in
London as it connects several parks
together forming a natural attraction that
sprawls through central London.
The Serpentine
This is a must see feature at Hyde
Park. It is a spectacularly large yet
artificial lake.

Queen Caroline, wife of King George II
had the lake constructed in 1730.

It is popular for boating and
swimming. The Serpentine is located
at the south end of the park and
stretched into the Kensington
Gardens.
Memorial Fountain
This has been described as a beautifully
calming memorial and praised for its
interactive qualities.

Created in memorial of Princess Diana, this
is a place to pay respects but also to
remember the late Princess of Whales.

Visitors are encouraged to put their feet
into the gushing water if the weather is
warm and it is meant to serve as a tranquil
place to relax….
The Flora and
Fauna
The most important feature of Hyde Park must be its beautifully
preserved and maintained flower and plant gardens.

“Hyde Park provides a unique habitat in the heart of London for
a diverse variety of species of flora and fauna. Positive changes
in management practices have gone a long way to encourage
new species into the park.

The creation of the meadow area gives a flavour of how Hyde
Park once looked and this area has become more diverse year
on year since its creation. Have a look during the summer for
butterflies feeding off the native wildflowers in the meadow.” –

With its close proximity to hotels near Hyde Park, this is a great
area to be situated next too as it makes for a lovely walk at any
time of the day.

“It came to me that Hyde Park
has never belonged to London -
that it has always been , in
spirit, a stretch of countryside;
and that it links the London's of
all periods together most
magically - by remaining
forever unchanged at the heart
of a ever-changing town.”
  ― Dodie Smith, I Capture the
             Castle
