Owner description: Upscale thoroughfare that is lined with fine shops, hotels and restaurants, and also is a fun place to people-watch.

The flags from the buildings here give away the fact, somewhat deliberately, that some of the classic London 'clubs' are along here. I'm sure there's been some interesting things happen behind these doors in the private Members' Clubs.

Worth making sure you take a look across Green Park as well.

It's also a place where you can park in the evenings as the parking restrictions are surprisingly lax (although worth checking they haven't changed!).

Park Lane, historically a fashionable street in London serves as the eastern boundary of Hyde Park, running from Marble Arch down to Hyde Park Corner.

Nice hotels still have their place along Park Lane but there is too much traffic on this street these days for this to be en enjoyable place to spend time.

You can see some nice monuments along Park Lane, including Marble Arch and the recently installed Still Water Horse Head Statue at the head of the street.

The Animals of War Memorial which can be found across from the Speaker's Corner Kiosk is worth a quick look. Then, at the foot of Park Lane, you can find a nice collection of war memorials at the Hyde Park Corner.

Other reasons to spend a bit of time around Park Lane is to see Hyde Park one of the best of London's best Royal Parks. We have also much enjoyed having afternoon tea at the Dorchester as well. This can be an enjoyable experience.

Park Lane is not what it was, but what is? From being a residential street decades ago, it’s now one of the busiest streets in London. It’s the western boundary of Mayfair, and has three lanes of traffic in each direction running north/south along the eastern boundary of Hyde Park. with a central reservation. In fact access to Hyde Park is now via an underpass.

So from being a country lane to fashionable residential area, it’s now a city highway, with the traffic that it’s designed to support.

Good street to walk along to get some space and nice views over Green Park down to Buckingham Palace. Plenty of shops and restaurants here as well as space in the Park to relax a little.
