This is best done on a bicycle so why not hire a Boris or other bike and whizz along the the pathways that criss-cross the various green spaces. Stop at The Serpentine and admire the beautiful white swans. Take a dip at Lansbury’s Lido or if you don’t fancy the idea of getting wet hire a rowing boat.

Pack or buy a pre-packed picnic and bring along a blanket to enjoy in the cool shade of the ancient trees of the Park. Be sure to visit Kensington Palace and Gardens at the western border of Hyde Park.
