Happy Easter everyone! Thanks to a heatwave in London, we will be deviating from the usual roast dinner and celebrating Easter outdoors with a picnic in Hyde Park! So I guess it’s only fitting to introduce this park in My Fair London post!
The city can be suffocating with constant traffic, noise, pollution, and crowds but located in the middle of all this chaos is an oasis of quiet and calm. When the sun slightly peaks out, regardless of the temperature, city workers in suits flock to the park to lie out on the grass minus socks and shoes – this always gives me the giggles! You can do just about anything at Hyde Park, you can hire a Boris bike and cycle around, you can rent a little pedal boat and pedal up and down the pond, you can start your own political debate at Speaker’s Corner, jump in the observation wheel and take a ride, have a bite to eat at the Serpentine Cafe or even paddle about in the Princess Diana Memorial Fountain. Check it out if you are in London, you will fall in love with it!
That winding path-like thing is actually the Princess Diana Memorial Fountain – it’s not the most attractive fountain but kids seem to love it!
