Hyde Park
National Gallery National Gallery. London

When King Henry VIII and his court were thundering across Hyde Park in 1536 in pursuit of deer and wild boar, it would have been difficult to visualise that years later the noble art of tai chi would be peacefully performed among the trees in the early morning, and the Italianate tenor of Pavarotti would echo across the park, applauded by vast audiences.

One of London's finest historic landscapes covering 142 hectares (350 acres). There is something for everyone in Hyde Park. With over 4,000 trees, a lake, a meadow, horse rides and more it is easy to forget

you're in the middle of London.

Hyde Park has a wide range of facilities, including a playground, The Lookout (an education centre) and toilets, including those for disabled people. Hyde Park also has a range of catering outlets, with offerings from simple ice creams and sandwiches to 3 course meals. The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain, was oponed by Her Majesty The Queen on 6th July 2004.
