Picnicking in Hyde Park, London

I know, having just returned from Greece, you’ll be awaiting my Grecian posts, but I’m going to keep you hanging out for them a wee bit longer…
I feel the need, today, to declare my love for and appreciate this GORGEOUS British heatwave we are currently being whisked away by.
It’s actually warmer here than it was in Greece and well, I couldn’t have been more excited to get back to London to enjoy it.
Never knowing how long the sun is going to last here in England, us brits have to act quickly and so I grabbed my picnic bag, my date & headed to Hyde Park sharpish.
Hyde Park is one of London’s 8 royal parks and covers 350 acres filled with greenery, peace and activity.
You can grab a mojito here, hop on a rowing boat or pedalo, open water swim, horse ride, cycle, stroll, play tennis, OR sit back and watch the world go by.
Hyde Park is a very popular hotspot, loved by both tourists and Londoners, so if the suns out it’s usually packed.
No need to worry or avoid it though, there’s more than enough to go around.

There are a few tube stations you can access Hyde Park by including: Hyde Park Corner, Knightsbridge & Marble Arch.

We headed to Green Park Tube Station as there is an M&S opposite to collect our picnic goodies, before walking 10 minutes to the park.

Here’s our picnic in piccys…

A British picnic doesn’t exist without strawberries, right?
Plus it’s Wimbledon, would be rude not to toast to Murray’s first victory!

There are so many parks over London for you to explore and enjoy.
If the sun treats us well, I think i’m going to park hop this summer and try ’em all!
Do you have a favourite spot to picnic in London?
I’d love to know… so that i can go! 🙂
Thank you for reading, lots of love…
