Hyde Park is one of the largest green spaces in central London and provides a truly great place to run right in the heart of the capital. The park provides a great place to run and be in a pleasant traffic free environment which is often hard to find in London. The routes in fact take in along with Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, Green Park and St James Park. The later parks provide an opportunity to run right past Buckingham Palace. The routes given are all on road/paths and are virtually completely flat.
