Wander Free in the Wild, in the Heart of London!

Even Einstein, a man of science and reason, believed in the ‘magic’ of nature and you should too. We’ve listed down a few upcoming excursions being conducted in London’s famous Hyde Park, for you to get up close and personal with nature and wander far enough to meet with yourself. If you live outside London, make sure you find accommodations near Hyde Park, such as The Westbourne Hyde Park Hotel, a 4 star boutique hotel, only a 5 minute drive away. Some Events in Hyde Park to Look for in 2017

You are sure to catch a nature ‘bug’ during such trip, so book your ticket at the official website of the Royal Parks right away. If you are hungry for more, visit the Natural History Museum or the Science Museum, which lie near Hyde Park.

And if you’ve had too much of nature, visit the world’s largest museum of decorative arts and design, The Victoria and Albert Museum or the Imperial College of London, simply to admire its architecture and grandeur.

Most importantly, don’t forget to book accommodation well in advance, such as The Westbourne, Hyde Park, a 4 star boutique hotel that is located close to many of the most popular tourist attractions of London. This can even help you if you are a shopaholic, with Harrods, Selfridges, Bond Street and Regent Street in close proximity to some of the best night activities from cleopatraescorts.co.uk/ and a spot of naked yoga isn’t far either.
