Take a Quick Tour of Hyde Park, One of Eight Royal Parks In London, England by Elisa Schmitz

Hyde Park is one of eight Royal Parks in London, England. After visiting Hyde Park in 2017, I know you can spend a dreamy day there and not see all of its 350 acres, but you'll have a jolly good time trying!

Established in 1536 and set in the heart of London, Hyde Park is a must-see when visiting England. Once the site of several duels, the park is now home to various events, demonstrations and concerts, and it seems like there's always something going on. Yet there are also many quiet, tucked away spots where you can relax, picnic or just take a breather.

Don't miss the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain, which will bring out all the feels. You also can take a swim in the Serpentine, or just gaze at the lake from a nearby café.

Among the park's many activities are tennis and horseback riding, and there's something for everyone in the family to enjoy. But you may prefer to just take a leisurely stroll or bike ride through nature and history!
