The park itself was appropriated by Henry 8th during the dissolution of the monasteries in 1536; initially used as a hunting forest and then opened up by James the First. It become a byword for duels, suicides in the Serpentine and public hangings at Tyburn on the site of the present Marble Arch.
Popular as a parade ground for human fashion until the mid 1800s, riders, walkers and runners now enjoy its spaces as a break from the relentless traffic of Park Lane. The private palaces on the edge of the Park have been replaced by hotels, but the buildings, whether domestic or now commercial, demonstrate the solid qualities of London construction.
Older traditions are demonstrated in the continuing popularity of wooden floors. These timeless features are natural and attractive – yet practical and hardwearing. Whether parquet blocks or hardwood boards, they are hygienic and easy to maintain.

Did you know about Hyde Park?
Hyde Park is the largest of four parks which form a chain from the entrance of Kensington Palace through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, via Hyde Park Corner and Green Park (19 hectares), past the main entrance to Buckingham Palace and then on through Saint James's Park (23 hectares) to Horse Guards Parade in Whitehall. The Grand Entrance to the park, also known as Queen Elizabeth Gate, at Hyde Park Corner next to Apsley House, was erected from the designs of Decimus Burton in 1824–25.
In 1536, Henry VIII acquired the manor of Hyde from the canons of Westminster Abbey, who had held it since before the Norman Conquest; it was enclosed as a deer park and remained a private hunting ground until James I permitted limited access to gentlefolk, appointing a ranger to take charge. Charles I created the Ring (north of the present Serpentine boathouses), and in 1637 he opened the park to the general public.
Hyde Park covers 340 acres (138 ha) and is the largest of London`s Royal Parks. In 1822 London`s first nude statue was erected in the south-east corner of Hyde Park, an ft(5.5 m) high figure of Achilles dedicated to the Duke of Wellington, and cast from cannons captured during his military campigns. Because it was subscribed for by the ‘country women‘ of England, a fig-leaf was swiftly added to spare their blushes, although there have been at least two attempts to remove it, in 1870 and 1961.
