Why locals love it

London's voice bellows from Hyde Park's NE corner where the every man has an outdoor public forum to voice their opinion to whomever is willing to listen. Originally the site of protests in Victorian Britain, Speakers' Corner today serves as a boisterous symbol of a contemporary democracy, where open debates are encouraged between its citizens.

Why you should visit it

Newspapers only provide so much, place your fingers firmly on the pulse of 21st century London and warm yourself with the heated discussions. Held every Sunday after 12pm, gain an insight into the mosaic of social perspectives that make London what it is. The open space of the parks' corner force no commitment, so observe or take part, your choice!

Special tip

Don't always follow the crowd; more often than not the one-on-one discussions with the Speakers can be the most insightful!
