Hyde Park Stables

by Sally Foster (follow)
A great activity for the animal lover in your family

Arguably the most beautiful park in London, but did you know that you could still ride horses through Hyde Park? You can actually ride on Rotten Row, which has been the most famous equestrian venue for over 300 years. That is pretty amazing! You can ride right by Serpentine Lake, and imagine yourself as one of the 'ton' back in the day.
