This oddly-named, sandy track has been horse-riding central for London society since the late 1600s, when it was established as a quiet ‘Route du Roi’ for William III on his way to Kensington Palace. The ladies no longer ride side-saddle here and nobody dresses to promenade or shows off their Dalmatian coaches anymore, but you’ll still see horsemen and women in some of London’s smartest riding gear, atop some of the best-kept horses in the country.

The celebrated Hyde Park Stables are responsible for most of this, and offer excellent, expert riding lessons for those of any age and ability. Even if you’ve never met a horse before, they’ll have one who will be polite and forgiving enough!

As well as the basics, you can focus on dressage in their two arenas, or simply go for a leisurely ride along the bridle tracks that meander through the well-kept grounds of Hyde Park, along the Serpentine, past the rose gardens and on up to Speaker’s Corner.

Amazing Experience

What a lovely way to see Hyde Park. The staff were so helpful and welcoming. The horses were in fantastic condition and very well natured. I asked to go down Rotten Row which was amzing. Definately a must for people visiting London.
