The Basics

Hyde Park is one of London’s most popular open-air hangouts, a much-frequented escape from the busy city streets. Parkgoers can explore independently, boating on the Serpentine lake, listening to people air their views at Speakers’ Corner, and viewing the Princess Diana Memorial Fountain.

Many hop-on hop-off bus tours of London stop in the vicinity of Hyde Park, while some bike tours follow paths through the park. Some royal-themed tours of London pass through en route to Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace. Seasonal Christmas-lights tours often incorporate a visit to the park, which plays host to the annual Winter Wonderland event during the festive season.

This trip is so worth booking

London Royal Parks Bike Tour including Hyde Park
This is our third city cycle tour with Fat Tyre Bike Company and I would recommend that no matter where you go, you should do a bike tour. Our guide Andrew was amazing, so informative and knowledgeable about London and was very entertaining. Even if a Royal London tour isn't your thing this bike tour will take you to parts of London you will never get to see otherwise and if taken at the start of your trip, it is a great way to navigate the city and help identify other places you would like to return to. I would highly recommend this bike tour.

London Royal Parks Bike Tour including Hyde Park
The tour was the highlight of our weekend away with a 15 and 17 year old. Everyone enjoyed the experience of cycling through London and learned some history without even realising it. Andrew our guide was charismatic and tailored the trip to our preferences. Highly recommended.

London Royal Parks Bike Tour including Hyde Park
Bike ride was nice. We didn’t hit all the high spots. I think a one hour lunch was not necessary and should have been spent on biking to other areas in London.

Nice easy bike ride through the beautiful royal parks. We covered quite a bit of ground though it was very flat ground. Food stop for lunch on Trafalgar square.

How to Get There

Parking can be both scarce and expensive in central London, so it’s best to go by public transport. Lancaster Gate (Central line), Marble Arch (Central line), Hyde Park Corner (Piccadilly line), and Knightsbridge (Piccadilly line) Tube stations are all within walking distance of the park.

When to Get There

Summer is the best time to visit, when open-air activities from film screenings to concerts take place. Mondays–Thursdays are typically quieter than weekends, and winter is usually quieter than summer, though the annual Winter Wonderland festival brings out big crowds during the lead-up to Christmas.
