The Serpentine Lake, Marble Arch and Speaker’s Corner are all popular places in London and they are all part of London’s premier Royal Park Hyde Park. The park is home to many of the City’s celebrations and hosts many major events and concerts including the last years huge Live 8 concert. The parkland was originally owned by the Monks of Westminster Abbey but was acquired by Henry VIII in 1536 as a hunting ground. The park covers 350 acres and has over 4,000 trees a lake and lush meadow and is also home to the Princess Diana Memorial. There’s plenty of places for walks and picnics. For a something a bit special Winter Wonderland comes to Hyde Park from December 1st. to the 6th of January- with a huge ice rink, Christmas Market and ice rides, cafe’s bars and lots of entertainment.
