Hyde Park is beautiful, isn’t it?

You’ve probably walked, paddled, had countless picnics in the park, as well as cycled, hiked and maybe even jogged through London’s most famous park.

But have you trotted through Hyde Park?

Hyde Park Stables offer a new school holiday activity and probably a new way of traveling through London’s central park.

Located in Bathurst Mews, in the heart of Connaught Village, the historic Hyde Park Stables offers horse riding sessions, where you can spend an afternoon trotting or cantering through the iconic park – sounds idyllic, doesn’t it?

Hyde Park Stables is one of the last stables of horses in central London, dating back some 300 years.

Stable owner, Ellie Hall McAteer, hopes that keeping the horses in Connaught Village will make the age-old sport accessible to a wider audience and encourage new people to take up an outdoor activity.

The stables are suitable for adults and children aged 4 and up and are suitable for all experience levels – whether you are a show jumping pro or have never touched a horse in your life.

Hyde Park rides are supervised by an experienced team member who also teaches the rider in the park and during lessons in the stables arena.

Prices start at £115.
