A Change of View - London, UK
Hyde Park is a large park of 350 acres that was originally a deer park for Henry VIII who bought the land from the monks of Westminster Abbey in 1536. At first it was the king's private area, but Charles I opened it up to the public in 1637. The park has lots of mature trees and grass with plenty of room for many people to jog, bike, stroll along or walk the dog.
Time for a nap. The birds are so used to people that you can get quite close to them.
We walked the length of the park as we were heading over to Buckingham Palace.
