Hyde Park Corner

Welcome to Hyde Park Corner

Sitting between Hyde Park and Green Park on a grand round-about, the park features open grass and monuments.

Hyde Park corner sits at the junction of Park Lane, Knightsbridge, Piccadilly, Grosvenor Place and Constitution Hill, and is a connecting transitional open space between Hyde Park and Green Park. Due to the very scale of these surrounding roads the site is essentially in many ways a grand formal accessible round-about. The site consists predominantly of open grass and monuments.

The main feature of the space is the Constitution Arch (more commonly known as the Wellington Arch, it was designed by Decimus Burton as a memorial to the Duke of Wellington and was originally built as a northern grand entrance gate to the grounds of Buckingham Palace.

The site includes various other monuments including a statue of Byron, and both the New Zealand and Australian War Memorials.

In 1952 the sites name "Hyde Park Corner" was used as a code/password to inform the Government about the death of King George VI.

Open 24 hours.
