London has a surprising amount of lush greenery right in the middle of the city, and the parks and squares actually offer all kinds of opportunities for visitors. You can enjoy a picnic on a sunny day, play some ball games or go rollerskating… or maybe you could go boating on the Serpentine in Hyde Park!
Nestled in the middle of the legendary Hyde Park is the Serpentine, a beautiful lake that’s home to an armada of paddle boats and row boats, which you can easily rent for a quick boating excursion.

If rowing your way around the lake seems like too much work, you can perch yourself in one of the outdoor cafés by the lake and watch others glide by. Either way, it’s not a bad way to spend a sunny day in London.
