Tourists visiting the capital with children will be very excited to venture to its amazing green spaces. Hyde Park is one of the best destinations that is very entertaining and ideal for families. The park is wonderful for a leisurely walk around or for a morning run. It’s also a favourite with dog-walkers and cyclists who want to admire the beautiful, lush scenery. Tourists can play some sport at the Hyde Park Tennis and Sports Centre. Here there is the opportunity for visitors to play tennis and lawn bowls. Travellers can also play a game of football in the green space, as well as rugby or summer sports such as rounders.
This wonderful attraction has a horse-riding school that young travellers will love to visit. They can have a riding lesson or just take a horse out on a wander on the pretty bridleways. There are also rowing and pedal boats available on the gorgeous Serpentine Lake that cuts right across the park. This stunning water is lovely to sit next to when watching its wildlife, or if visitors want to have a picnic in the warmer months. The Serpentine Lido is an amazing paddling pool that’s great fun for children, and is open between May and September.
