Living in Hyde Park

Hyde Park is one of London’s finest historic landscapes and remains one of the largest parks in central London covering 350 acres of parkland, the focal point being The Serpentine Lake, where paddle boats or canoes can be rented and is home to a number of fascinating buildings and monuments, such as The Serpentine Bridge, Speakers’ Corner, the Joy of Life fountain, the famous Achilles statue and the Diana Memorial Fountain.

Cycling is allowed through the park and the numerous paths are extensively used for jogging. Horse riding is available from Hyde Park Stables in Bathurst Mews and there are tennis courts, a bowling green and swimming at The Serpentine Lido.

The park is a peaceful place to relax and people-watch whilst sitting on one of the many benches or deck chairs available to hire and there is a selection of eateries to enjoy a snack or a glass of wine.

Hyde Park also hosts a number of live music events throughout the year as well as Winter Wonderland – London’s premier Christmas Fayre.

The fashionable boutique shopping areas of Westbourne Grove and Connaught Village provide superb local shopping and dining out amenities, with the famous shops, theatres and restaurants of the West End close by.

Hyde Park was obtained by Henry VIII in 1536 from the canons of Westminster Abbey, who had owned it since before the Norman Conquest. It remained enclosed as a deer park and private hunting grounds for 101 years until Charles I opened it to the general public in 1637.

Until the 18th Century the farmland north of Hyde Park was occupied by the infamous Tyburn Gallows, where many met their fate at the hands of the executioner.

The last hanging to take place was on 3rd November 1783, when John Austin, a highwayman, was hanged.

After the Gallows were removed the developers moved in, with Connaught Square being the first large scale property development in Hyde Park's vicinity.

The first coherent landscaping was completed in 1733 when The Serpentine was formed by damming the little Westbourne that flowed through the park at a cost to the public purse of £20,000.

One of the most important events to take place in the park was the Great Exhibition of 1851. The Crystal Palace was constructed on the south side of the park, however, the public in general did not want the building to remain after the closure of the exhibition, and it was moved to Sydenham Hill in South London.
