Hyde is a London Royal Park which Henry VIII acquired in 1536 (it had been owned by the monks of Westminster Abbey before that). A large area of open space in the city centre of 630 acres and a perimeter of 4 miles. It has the memorials at Marble Arch at the east side and Kensington palace at the west. You can also see the Albert Memorial, Queen Victoria's monument to her husband.

The park is a good place for a walk and you can sit on the bench and read a book, soak up the sun in spring and summer months.
