Favorite thing: At over 350 acres, Hyde Park is one of the largest green spaces in Central London.
Hyde Park provides facilities for many different leisure activities and sports as well as being the focal point for public events of all sizes.
An oasis of tranquillity in central London, Hyde Park, together with Kensington Gardens to the west, is the largest of the three royal parks. On the north-east side is Speaker's Corner, a traditional haven of free speech. It is also famous for the Serpentine boating lake, complete with a designated swimming area, and the Serpentine Gallery. Lesser known is the Dogs' Cemetery at the northern end of the park. The graves commemorate more than 200 pooches who enjoyed the park in their day.
