Just one of the nine Royal Parks in London, Hyde Park is home to the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain and Walk, a summer concert series and The Serpentine, which allows for swimming and other water-related activities during the summer months. The park covers 350 acres in London, an area that dates back to the 1500s. King Henry VIII hunted in Hyde Park in the 16th Century, Queen Caroline created The Serpentine in the 1730s and Speaker’s Corner has allowed people to speak open and freely on their subject of choice since 1872. Stroll through the park or have a picnic with your family on your next vacation to London and enjoy the scenery year-round. During the winter, check out Winter Wonderland, complete with ice skating, snow sculptures and rides.
