Introduction Who says Hyde Park to me just gets a big smile back. Hyde Park brings back some good memories. Whether in Sydney's Hyde Park or the park in London, both have a magical atmosphere for me. I have been at the party Hard Rock Calling. With performances from The Police, The Bangles and Eric Clapton along with this beautiful park it was a successful party. The magic of Hyde Park London I will never forget. History Hyde Park was claimed in 1536 by Henry the eighth to use as a hunting ground. It is one of the Royal Parks of London. Here belong, for example, Richmond and Regent Park. Today is the official property of the royal family. ... Read the complete review

To propose to my girlfriend, I took her on a surprise trip down to London and arranged to have a picnic in the park, where I would pop the question. And the experience did not disappoint. Hyde Park is a beautiful space right in the centre of London's retail district. The park is situated in one corner next to Marble Arch and in another next to the Royal Albert Hall. The park is a perfect addition to any tourist's trip to see this country's capital. There are plenty of secluded grassy areas for the more romantic setting (as I used with the picnic) and there are plenty of other features in themselves that make the park a good tourist attraction. ...

Hyde Park is one of the biggest parks situated within London, and is really a great place for those whom like to stroll / rollerblade along through the park on a hot day, relax in the sun, have a picnic under the trees, watch the wildlife, or even enjoy the plantation growing around you. Hyde Park is situated near a lake, and you can even go on the "pedal boat" rides, which are much fun. They usually contain around 2 people, and it is considerably reasonably priced, usually lasting for around 30 minutes to an hour per ride. Hyde Park is also a very popular destination for concerts and events, due to the space which it contains. This landscape covers 350 ... Read the complete review

Every year, I go to the Last Night of the Proms in Hyde Park, London. This year was my sixth year, and was every bit as good as the previous five. The event takes place on the second Saturday in September, and is part of the culmination of all the Prom concerts that have taken place over the summer, mostly in the Royal Albert Hall. For years, I dreamed of going to the Last Night at the Proms in the Albert Hall, but it was one of those things I never got round to doing. When a couple of friends suggested that we went to the Proms in the Park instead, six years ago, I jumped at the chance. From the very first visit, I was hooked, and now I order the ...

I have to agree with those who like Hyde Park, it is a lovely space, but my favourite park in London has to be St.James' park. It is a lot smaller than Hyde park, but with Horse Guards parade and Buckingham palace at it's far ends, it must surely be the park with the most sights! For me the most pleasant part of St.James' park are the pond and the bridge over it. The pond is a home for many rare birds and wildlife. In particular it is a home for several pelican (yes pelican!) These magnificent birds can be seen preening themself and generally showing off most days. Last year one even performed a trick for our friends from across the pond, namely it ...
