LARGEST ROYAL PARK IN THE HEART OF LONDON

With its 350 acres, Hyde Park is the largest Royal park in London and boasts world famous sites, such as Speaker’s Corner, the Diana Memorial Fountain and Serpentine Lake and Gallery.

Famous sites in Hyde Park
Aside from enjoying the park for its natural and serene beauty, this rural landscape has some of the most famous sites in London.

Speaker’s Corner
The park is home to Speakers' Corner where opinionated Londoners can hold forth on a variety of topics. The speeches delivered here have been the catalyst for many a lively debate since the site first became popular in the 1800s. The speaker’s corner is located at the north-east corner of the park and a quick 5-minute walk from the hotel.
 
The Diana Memorial Fountain
On the south side of the park – the opposite side of the park to the hotel, but still only a 20-minute walk– stands the sculpted water memorial dedicated to Princess Diana, opened in 2004. The memorial is designed to reflect Princess Diana’s quality and openness. Explore and admire this beautiful monument and perhaps dip your feet during the summer.
