The LookOut, Hyde Park is a unique, eco-friendly building nestled in an acre of enclosed grounds in the heart of the park.

The LookOut enables people of all ages, abilities and communities to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and:

  • Learn about the natural world
  • Take part in family and wellbeing activities
  • Hire our venue for private celebrations and events

Our purpose built gardens and indoor spaces are practical all year round, whatever the weather, and our two bright and airy ‘discovery’ classrooms can host up to 30 students each.

The LookOut is fully accessible and has Disability Discrimination Act compliant features including wide paths, toilets and a fully fitted sensory room.


Connect with nature, and learn about the park environment and wildlife with hands-on practical activities in Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. Our expert team offers a wide range of outdoor learning for all ages. When your school visits us, you and your students will get to explore the park and learn all about the environments, wildlife and heritage that surrounds you.
