Although it could be listed with the other Royal Parks, Hyde Park justifies an entry in itself for its sheer array of attractions. It’s big enough for horse tracks and world-famous galleries (the Serpentine), yet small enough to explore on foot, in-line skate or Boris Bike. The north side is home to Diana’s memorial fountain and Speakers' Corner (where civilians can peddle views on almost anything). Don’t miss rowing on the Serpentine, which has boats for rent and an old-fashioned waterside pavilion.
