Hyde Park

The largest central London park with Marble Arch and Speakers' Corner at the north east corner, and Kensington High Street on the south west. It borders onto Kensington Gardens on the west.

Attractions in Hyde Park include the Albert Memorial, the [Serpentine Gallery]? and the Serpentine itself, on which you can paddle in hired rowing boats or pedalos for 3.50 an hour (adult price) until 18:30 in the summer, or swim. To the west of the Serpentine is the famous statue of Peter Pan, said to be a favourite of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, and as seen at the end of "Hook". In the north-east corner of the park is Speakers' Corner, where people go to debate on Sundays.

The Serpentine Road in summer is a meeting place for London's Roller Skating community. For more on this, see the map at http://www.citiskate.co.uk/skatersmap.htm

There is a pricey underground carpark beneath Hyde Park.
