Summer is here, which makes it the perfect time to get out and visit London’s beautiful Royal Parks! To make it even more exciting, we’ve planned a whole range of new events in Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens that will give you the chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, relax, rest your mind, and enjoy the sunshine.
1. Water Lilies and Wine
Join us for an evening of relaxation at our hidden oasis in the heart of Hyde Park. Try your hand at pond dipping, discovering all the wonderful creatures that live under the water lilies, and then take a guided stroll around Hyde Park before relaxing with a complimentary glass of wine as the sun sets! A beautiful location and a unique, relaxing way to spend a summer evening.
