"Skate the streets" Hyde Park Tip by jolou

Hyde Park, London: 184 reviews and 380 photos

  Meeting by the Serpentine
by jolou

if you have your own skates (or can hire some) then go to Hyde Park on a Wednesday evening during Spring and Summer and join the streetskate. If you can stop on skates then give it a whirl - it's the best adrenalin rush I've ever had in London. Learn to stop before you go on it (I made that mistake once and still feel terrible about parked car's wing mirrors!)

There's also a Friday night skate that I haven't braved as apparently it's quite a bit faster.

Address: Park Lane, Bayswater Road, Knightsbridge
Directions: Nearest Tubes, Marble Arch, Hyde Park Corner, Lancaster Gate.
