A beautiful neighbor of The Gore Hotel, Hyde Park is one of London’s nine Royal Parks. How big is Hyde Park? It covers 350 acres and is one of the city’s finest landscapes once used by Henry VIII and his court for hunting for deer. Among things to do in Hyde Park, our concierges advise various recreational activities:
• boating on the Serpentine (from April until 31 October)
• tennis on 6 high quality tennis courts
• horseback riding
One of Hyde Park’s events that rocks the city is British summertime festival held over two weeks once a year. This summer, the festival saw on stage Massive Attack, Florence and the Machine, Carole King, Mumford & Sons, Take That and Stevie Wonder.
What’s on at Hyde Park:
• A highly awaited Hyde Park concert is the annual Last Night of the Proms in the Park. On 10 September, American pop and rock legends Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons are to headline this season.
• What other setting would be more thrilling to watch a horror film in than Brompton Cemetery? Especially if we are talking about an Alfred Hitchcock film one. From 19 August to 22 September 2016, you are invited to a viewing with thrills and spills. But if you don’t have the nerves to face the challenge, opt for Bushy Park with Jurassic Park and The Jungle Book, or the Hyde Park Lido with The Life Aquatic and Jaws.
