Living in Hyde Park

A Chestertons property guide to London

Gardens in Hyde Park

Welcome to Hyde Park

Hyde Park remains one of the most desirable areas in London. We’ve been based in our busy office for over 50 years and know the area extremely well. Whether you’re looking for a grand family home or a small pied-á-terre, the range of properties available around Hyde Park means that you’re likely to find what you’re looking for. Hyde Park has so much to offer and is in high demand with both international and domestic buyers. There are many Georgian and early Victorian townhouses and mansion blocks in the area, as well as post-war and contemporary developments to consider. 

  • Exclusive area
  • Open space
  • Historic area
  • Social vibe
  • Good shops
  • Entertainment & nightlife

    The areas closest to the park have plenty of traditional pubs dotted around. If you venture closer to Oxford Street and Bayswater you’ll find bars and clubs. The theatres and cinemas of the West End are not far away, thanks to the good transport in the area. 

    Best place for a glass of wine

    Gyngleboy (an old term meaning a leather drinking pouch) is owned by Davy’s wine merchants who own several wine bars in London. The pub is pleasantly old fashioned and traditionally decorated with dark wooden panels. 

    Best place for a late night out

    Carbon Bar, located just off Oxford Street, is open until 3 am and frequently features DJs from the Ministry of Sound. There are plenty of unusual cocktails on their drinks menu that are sure to keep you dancing until closing time.

  • Parks & recreation

    Hyde Park manages to draw in visitors whatever the weather. It’s one of London’s eight Royal Parks and covers a huge 350 acres. The park has a wide range of recreational facilities to take advantage of from tennis to swimming in the Serpentine. There is also an art gallery in the park that frequently features displays and installations from high profile artists. 

  • Restaurants & shopping

    As expected for an area such as Hyde Park, it is home to wide range of exquisite designer boutiques, fabulous bakeries, chic cafes and excellent restaurants. 

    Best place for coffee beans

    The Markus Coffee Company on Connaught Street sells top quality beans. After fleeing from the failed Hungarian Revolution, Mr and Mrs Markus arrived in London in 1956. One year later they opened their coffee shop bringing fine coffee beans to the streets of London.

    Best place for Greek delicacies

    The Athenian Grocery on Moscow Road in Bayswater is the oldest Greek deli in the UK. They opened their shop in 1952 and have since expanded to include an online shop too.

  • Schools

    The majority of schools in the area are fee-paying private schools. For primary age children there are Paint Pots Montessori, Ravenstone Pre-Preparatory, Wetherby Pre-Preparatory and Connaught House School. For younger children there’s the Ravenstone nursery school.

  • Transport & travel

    Transport is excellent with a variety of nearby underground stations to close from.

    Hyde Park Corner – Piccadilly line

    Marble Arch – Central line

    Lancaster Gate - Central line

    Queensway - Central line

    Bayswater – Circle and District lines
