Why is Hyde Park London famous ?

Why is Hyde Park London famous? We all know the name of London’s iconic park. But how much do we know about its historical and modern-day significance? 

And does that fame translate into being a good area to stay in London as a tourist? Should you book hotels in Hyde Park?

What is unique about Hyde Park?

Hyde Park has a storied past that always proves fascinating to guests of Hyde Park Boutique Hotel.

Its origin story dates back to 1536 when Henry VIII established the rural area as a royal hunting ground. It would be over a century later when, propelled by King Charles I, the park first welcomed the general public.

After the Great Plague of London caused havoc in 1665 and 1666, Hyde Park served as a place to safely quarantine the infected.

We can thank Queen Caroline for overhauling the landscape of Hyde Park in 1730 and introducing the Serpentine Lake.
