Hyde Park

Hyde Park is one of London's most beautiful and historic parks, spanning over 350 acres. Enjoy a leisurely stroll or go rollerblading along the Serpentine, rent a rowing or peddle boat with your honey, swim, play tennis, relax over a picnic lunch, or go horseback riding along the park's bridle path.

Speaker's Corner
at North East end of Hyde Park
Every Sunday morning, people flock here from far and wide to "experience" Speakers Corner at Hyde Park's Marble Arch. Some people participate in the Open Forum — anyone who has something to say, on any subject they please, (usually Politics, Tourists, or Religion) can stand on their soap box and "entertain" the audience — others just come to listen and watch. More than often, the discussions get quite heated. It's worth a visit...at least once.

7/7 Memorial
On July 7, 2009, a memorial of 52 stainless steel pillars was unveiled in central London's Hyde Park to honor the victims of the July 7, 2005 bombings.

The 52 steel columns — one for each victim of the July 7, 2005 London bombings — stand 11.5 feet tall. A stainless steel plaque listing the name of the victims is sited on a grass bank at the far eastern end of the memorial.

The memorial is located in the southeast corner of Hyde Park, the memorial is just north of Achilles, to the east of Lovers Walk.

Those attending the memorial service included Prime Minister Gordon Brown, London Mayor Boris Johnson, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall... and families of the 7/7 victims.
