Hyde Park a History of Trees
Hyde Park is one of London’s oldest and arguably Britain’s most famous park. It has a long and varied history that has seen continual change and evolution in its landscape and use. From the site of a monastery to royal hunting ground and from private royal grounds to one of the first public parks for the upper classes; some of the most significant moments in British cultural and societal history have involved Hyde Park. Through the centuries of change, the trees have evolved with the landscape and are a key part of its history. Join us for a different historical perspective on one of London’s finest and most famous public parks.
