Boating on The Serpentine
Grab a pedalo or a row boat on the idyllic Serpentine
Boating on the Serpentine takes on a unique charm during autumn and winter. As the leaves change colour and fall, the lake is surrounded by a tapestry of rich, warm hues, creating a magnificent backdrop for your boat ride. Hire a pedalo or a row boat to enjoy a unique perspective of Hyde Park from the water. Sail around Heron Island in the crisp air, go to the Serpentine Bridge and back, then treat yourself to a warming hot drink at the end.
