One of London's largest parks, covering over 350 acres, Hyde Park is an oasis in the centre of the capital.

Originally a hunting ground for royalty in the 1500s, the park is now popular with everyone, from Sunday rollerbladers to running events, recreational activities, big summer concerts and mass demonstrations. In the colder months there is Winter Wonderland with its Christmas markets and fairground rides to brighten a grey day.

Although it's a busy and popular park, it isn't difficult to find a quiet place of your own. And with autumn upon us, who doesn't love wrapping up for a cozy walk through the park with a hot chocolate?

We love slipping into our Cocorose fold up shoes for one of our favourite walks, which links the royal parks of Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, Green Park and St James Park together. It's a lovely way to spend a few hours marvelling at royal households and palaces, famous monuments, statues and fountains. And all without needing to take too many steps outside of parkland and gardens. An oasis indeed.
