Hyde Park
Hyde Park

Hyde Park is one of the largest parks in the United Kingdom, being thus, one of the largest urban parks in the world.

If we join Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens they would add in total more than 250 hectares, all of them full of grass, lakes, statues and fountains of different styles.
Hyde Park was founded by Henry VIII in 1536 and was used as a royal and private hunting ground of the monarchy, but in 1637 and until today, it was opened to the public so that all people could enjoy this park, you can even see all the small monuments that this small urban forest hides, among them, the memorial to Princess Diana.

In addition, it is very likely that you will find the Royal Guard on horseback, and also, during your walk, you may make friends with a squirrel or any other type of animal in the enclosure.
