Hyde Park is a major park in Central London. It is the largest of four Royal Parks that form a chain from the entrance of Kensington Palace through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, via Hyde Park Corner and Green Park and passes the main entrance of Buckingham Palace. The park also includes the Serpentine Lake and the Long Water.
At around 350 acres and with over 4,000 trees Hyde Park is one of the greatest city parks in the world. There is a large lake, ornamental gardens, fountains, play areas, horse riding tracks, cafes and restaurants - take some time out for a picnic lunch in the park and you might forget that you are right in the centre of London. Hyde Park is just a short walk from the Princes Square in Bayswater.
