Top 5 Things to Do in Hyde Park

Speakers Corner is a historical spot that has been the site of open debates and to present speeches since 1872. The Speakers Corner is still a place to talk freely and passionately. You can see people passionately speaking on any topic at the historical spot. 

2. The Serpentine Lake

Serpentine Lake is a beautiful 40-acre lake that winds snake-like across the central section of the park. It’s long been the centre of activity in Hyde Park, thronging with geese and waterfowl, surrounded by picnickers on striped deck chairs (which you can hire cheaply). During warmer months, you can explore the lake by hiring a boat or Pedalo.

Located on either side of the lake are the Serpentine Galleries. The gallery showcases the masterpiece works of the International famous artist, also during summer, a new temporary pavilion structure will be showcased by a  different architect.

The gallery is open for visitors to explore at a free entry on all days except Monday.

Kensington Palace was the former home of Princess Diana, and there is a series of memorial sites to the late Princess of Wales throughout the gardens and park.
