Hyde Park was a favoured hunting ground of Henry VIII in 1536 - a fact made easier by his ownership of the park itself. Today it is a venue for some great rock concerts (Queen and the Rolling Stones, for instance).
Hyde Park has come through the ages with not a wrinkle, able to change with the times without losing its character. Today there are all sorts of things one can do there, from bird watching and admiring nature's wonders to rowing on Lake Serpentine, or also tennis, swimming, horse riding, etc.
Located right in the heart of London, the park still amazes visitors by its sprawling 142 hectares.
