Swan on the Serpentine in winter
Hyde Park

Welcome to Hyde Park

For hundreds of years, visitors have flocked here to party, protest and play. 

Eating and drinking in Hyde Park

Stop by and enjoy a lunch, an indulgent cream tea, hot chocolate or coffee at any of our cafés or kiosks – and look out for our vintage ice cream vans too.

Our cafés and kiosks

Our cafés – the Serpentine Bar & Kitchen, the Serpentine Lido Café, the Park Sports Café, and The Lodge Café at Hyde Park Corner – all serve delicious and sustainably prepared hot and cold food with vegan, vegetarian, and other dietary options. Every venue has outdoor and indoor seating, so no matter the weather, you can eat and drink in comfort.

Various kiosks are also located across Hyde Park. Whether you are grabbing an ice cream ready for a boat trip or a coffee for your morning walk, our kiosks have something for everyone. Check out the park information boards or the park map here for the most convenient one.

Picnicking in Hyde Park

The park is a great place for a picnic! A selection of freshly cut sandwiches, artisan baguettes and drinks are available in our cafés and kiosks.

Feel free to bring your own food and drink to enjoy in the park but barbecues and any sort of fire lighting is absolutely forbidden.

Please take your litter home with you or place it in one of our bins on the way out – wildlife and litter don’t mix.

Every purchase helps us care for Hyde Park

A proportion of anything you spend at our cafés or kiosks goes straight back to help look after the Royal Parks, and the wealth of wildlife and natural habitats they contain.
