Finding exceptional hotels around London's famous green oasis.

Summertime particularly is my favourite time in one of the greatest city parks in the world. Three hundred and fifty acres with over 4000 trees, flower gardens, a meadow and a large lake.

London’s green lung, Hyde Park boasts an interesting history when in 1536, Henry VIII decided he wanted the land for himself to partake in hunting affairs. The problem was that it belonged to the monks of Westminster.

Well, being king and mighty ruler of the land, that wasn’t much of a problem at all. He simply confiscated the land from the monks and went hunting.It wasn’t until 1637 that another King, Charles I decided to make the park public.

Sights and things to do in Hyde Park

A stroll through this magnificent park will reveal not only natures masterpieces but many of mankind’s creations as well. Statues adorn the landscape, modern day expressions of hero’s, joy, triumph and sorrow. Princess Diana’s memorial fountain can be viewed along with the Joy of Life fountain to my personal favorite, the Drinking Horse – a superb piece of sculpture that’s sheer size and rendition leave one a sense of immediate recognition and pleasure while marveling at the seemingly delicate balance of the sculpture.

Speakers Corner of course remains a wonderful short term source of amusement as anyone with a thought or opinion is free to express it and usually does. Swimming, horse riding, cycling are all available and of course, just lazing on the green lawn chilling is a worthy pursuit of nothing.
