- In most of London's parks, diving into a water feature would be heavily frowned on, but not at Hyde Park's wonderful Serpentine Lido. On the south side of this beautiful sweep of water, near the Lido Cafe and serene Diana Memorial Fountain, the wise folk who run the park have sectioned off a large square for urbanites and visitors alike to get back to nature and swim in wild water. On dingy grey days, swimmers are outnumbered by monochrome Canada geese, but it does get busy when the sun shines. They have a sunbathing area on a tiled terrace, changing rooms and a child safe paddling pool.
