Hyde Park

The main park in central London, in the City of Westminster. It belongs to the royal parks and is the largest of them, and its area is as much as 159 hectares. Divided by two lakes: Serpentine and The Long Water. Visitors will find a bar and a cafe here, and those seeking experience can participate in numerous family events or concerts.

Hyde Park was founded in 1536 by King Henry VIII, who acquired this land from monks from Westminster Abbey. Since then, the park was in royal hands. He changed his character in 1637, when Jakub I made him a public place. Today it is a place known primarily for its socio-public character: in Speaker's Corner, citizens can speak in public in the name of freedom of speech.

Architectural buildings in the park are noteworthy, most of them were designed by Decimus Burton in the 1820s. The most popular building is Marble Arch, the original gate to the royal park.
