In big cities there is always a park where you can forget about the bustle to relax or go on a picnic. Of course, that also happens in a busy city like London. Surrounded by streets with shops, cars, people working and stressed about arriving somewhere on time and tourists photographing every corner of the city. Hyde Park It is one of those places that you will fall in love in less than five minutes.
Thousands of square meters of garden and green areas divided into several areas and divided into two by Lake Serpentine, where you can see a lot of ducks, swans and other aquatic species at the foot of Buckinham palace. Inside Hyde Park, or rather attached, are Kensinton Gardens, gardens that have the residence in which Lady Di and Charles of England lived during their life together and that will be where William of England and Kate Middleton live.
One of the most famous parts of Hyde Park is the Speakers Corner, an area where they met in small groups to give talks or demonstrate, and which has become the epicenter of all mass gatherings. In addition, in summer they do concerts with great artists who not only make you enjoy live music but the environment is perfect, so if you go at that time you will share a party with hundreds of thousands of people. The park has many accesses from different points of the city, if you go shopping in Oxford Street You have an entrance just where the Marble Arch metro is. If you are on High Street Kensinton you also have another entrance, and many more scattered throughout many parts of the city.
Although any day is good, all the people who live in London take advantage of Sunday to go to hyde parkAnd I think that is the best day since you can see a lot of families having a picnic, groups of children celebrating a birthday, gangs playing soccer or couples taking a romantic walk. If the weather is good, it is best to feel one more and take the food (there is a McDonalds at the entrance near Oxford Street) to enjoy it as a picnic. For dessert, there is an ice cream parlor in the center that is delicious.
