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
