Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Serene, well kept, soothing place to walk around peacefully.
    The chirping of the birds, the calmness of the lake, the breeze in your hair... It's all so magical

    One of the smaller parks, so not as easy to get lost, but still plenty to see. The flowers were beautiful, lots of squirrels and birds, and the fountains prompt many photos. Very easy to access if you are near the Palace , perfect on a warm day to have a break from sightseeing. Minutes from Trafalgar Square

    This is a magnificent green space in the centre of London. Love the vibrant flower displays, serene lake and the fresh aire all year round. Truly a gem of the city

    Good walking shoes are a must, or rain boots that are comfortable, or hiking books that are great for walking more than hiking. Expect rain and puddles everywhere, especially in the winter months, so you want shoes that are water resistant or waterproof.

    Do not feed the wildlife please, you will see signs asking you to obey this rule, but as always, humans do what they want to do and have no respect for nature or rules.

    Do not touch the flowers or plants in the gardens! I know you are tempted to take a flower, and yes they are beautiful, but leave the gardens as you find them.

    The gardens can be windy and cold, especially in the areas that are close to the river, you will need to wear something warm, and again, it might also be raining!

    You need a good umbrella, your hotel will probably have some, mine did and they were of excellent quality. This is not a city for low grade umbrellas guys, you gotta step up your game!

    Stay off that luscious green grass, I know it’s tempting, but your feet will be covered in mud and dog poop. If you look around in any direction you will notice dog trainers in the grass, and with the weather you already know it’s wet! Stay off the grass and let the dogs enjoy a bit of room to play!

    Make room for those getting a bit of exercise, there will be walkers, joggers and runners of all types, let them pass in peace please!

    Don’t miss the artwork and its detailed explanation by the artist. This is The Arch by Henry Moore, his sculptures are loved around the world.

    Stop and read Discover the Birds of The Longwater! You will find some interesting tidbits about the different variations of birds and what makes them unique!

    This is a great place for a date, the entry is free, you can spend time walking and roaming and find a cafe for a light low cost snack and of course, a spot of tea. A picnic alone or with friends would also work, I would not advise that during the winter, but in the spring and summer, I know these grounds are packed with people of all ages enjoying the beauty in the company of others.

    Peter Pan~The boy who would not grow up! If you are a fan of Peter Pan, don’t miss the statue, and expect people to be there getting selfies and refusing to move so you can enjoy the spot as well. Pay them no mind, especially if you aren’t in a rush!

    Make sure you visit one of the cafes or gift shops, a portion of the proceeds from all purchases support the upkeep of the parks and wildlife!

    A rule to follow in all nature spaces is take nothing, and leave with what you came with, trash included! I can say these grounds, trails and paths were in immaculate condition. Aside from people feeding the birds, I saw no trash and no rules being broken. So take a day to roam around Hyde Park, there is beauty that is there for everyone of all ages and interests to enjoy!

    We visited here with friends on a sunny Good Friday. We had a nice walk round the park to the viewpoint and then to the kids play area. The play area was really good, with a sandpit and lots of fun slides. We walked a bit further and found ourselves in the flower gardens, these fields were lovely and in immaculate condition. We had a lovely time playing here

    A lovely park to walk through didn't spend enough time there, I am guessing it would look a lot better in spring and summer

    Overall I had a good day out at London Zoo. I think they do make the most of what is a small site, offering thoughtful enclosures for most of the animals.

    Highlights included watching two Gibbons up close grooming each other and seeing a baby Gorilla for the first time.

    The food was also very good, I had a pizza which was freshly made and cooked in front of me. I tend to find that food at UK zoos is usually below par so this was a nice surprise.

    Whilst a good day out, I do think that Chester Zoo is better value considering that they charge a similar price. I also saw a solitary Tiger pacing, which is never a good sign as this is a behaviour that Tigers and Lions display to manage stress.

    I visited the aquarium with my two sons,I thought the tickets were expensive but we really enjoyed the tour, there was so much to see , walking over a tank and under another was a memorable experience, staff were very friendly but scarce throughout , the ones we did encounter added greatly though. Two downsides, 1. At stages of the tour it was most definitely overcrowded ,it was difficult to spend time at some viewing points and very stuffy and 2. No cash accepted , disappointing when you have kids wanting to spend their pocket money , overall a good day out

    I feel the entrance fee is expensive, the admission process once you’ve arrived is chaotic, huge cues. A couple in front if us waited patiently and got to the front only to be told to join the back of the other cue!
    Considering its mud march the place was heaving, staff were a mix of pleasant and polite to down right rude! I would remain mindful that walking through the palace and looking at the exhibits you need to weave in and out of sizeable crowds.

    I appreciate that money is required to maintain these historic buildings, and pay staff, however I felt there were simply too many people going through at 30 min intervals … perhaps a rad greedy on the palaces part !

    Great views of the City of London and beyond. A free experience. We didn’t have to queue (we visited early afternoon on a Friday) and the website shows you how busy the garden is live so you can see whether to expect a queue before you arrive. A quick security check (airport style) before getting the lift to the garden where you are free to wander and enjoy the views at your leisure. Recommended!

    Another lovely visit to the Cafe in Chelsea Physic Garden. A warm welcome from Jorge and Norma, they even remembered my name. A delicious gluten free carrot cake, from now on my absolute favourite! Many thanks!
