Hyde Park

Hyde Park is one of the most beautiful natural areas in the city of London and is always full of visitors coming to explore the space and visit the numerous memorials that are housed here.

Spanning over 350 acres, there is so much to see and do you could spend your whole day getting lost in this park and there would still be something you hadn’t managed to squeeze in.

There are also a lot of famous landmarks within walking distance of it, so once you’ve enjoyed a stroll and a picnic in the park, head out past your London Hyde Park hotel and see some of the most famous sights in London.

You will probably be feeling tired after an entire day spent on your feet, so your room at the Park Grand London will be the perfect haven to relax and unwind and will await you after you’ve spotted all of these famous landmarks…

Kensington Palace

Visit this historic building and marvel at all its beauty, including Kensington Gardens. Whilst there, make sure you also take some time to see one of the many exhibitions that are held through the year.

The Serpentine Galleries

Situated between Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, visit these galleries to experience contemporary art by both British and International artists. The Serpentine Gallery was established in 1970 and a new addition, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects was added later in 2013.

The Wellington Arch

Visit the stunning Wellington Arch, situated outside the Duke of Wellington’s former residence, which commemorates his famous victory at Waterloo. Its most dramatic feature is the spectacular bronze chariot with the figure of Peace.

After a day spent exploring London, what could be better than a comfortable overnight stay at a London Hyde Park Hotel?

Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground

When you have the kids with you, this is the perfect place to take them for an afternoon of fun and playing. The focal point of the playground is a large pirate boat that sits on the well-maintained white sand. Little ones will love climbing on the boat and turn the wheel, pretending they are really at sea. If it’s a hot day then take advantage of the mermaid’s fountain and splash around to keep cool. There is also a lovely teepee camp and a treehouse encampment with slides and ladders, making this an exceptionally fun environment for children.

Once they are all played out, head out for some dinner and then settle them down in a room at the Park Grand London.

Oxford Street

It would almost be a crime to visit London and not experience Oxford Street in all its glory. This bustling street houses more than 300 shops and spans across 5 million square feet, meaning you are spoilt for choice if you are out shopping.

Dartmouth House

Visit the international headquarters of the ESU (English-Speaking Union), which is represented in more than 50 countries worldwide. Spend time admiring the beautifully painted ceilings and the grand staircase in this exceptional building.
