       Hyde Park (together with Kensington Gardens, whose land was originally part of the park) was bought by King Henry VIII in 1536 and covers an area of 250 hectares. The park and gardens are popular with Londoners and tourists alike, who love the wide open spaces and atmosphere of the countryside very near some of the city's most famous shopping areas.
