Separated from Hyde Park by the Serpentine, a lake used by boaters and swimmers, this park is calmer and more peaceful than its neighbor, and features many attractions including a statue of Peter Pan, Albert Memorial and the Serpentine Art Gallery.

You wouldn't think you were in London when in this lovely park, its so relaxing and quiet. Great for people watching. Really popular with cyclists, joggers and walkers. Enjoyed a delicious cold drink and chocolate muffin in the cafe on a baking hot summers day.
