Hyde Park is lovely, isn't it?

You've probably had a stroll through the Serpentine, paddle boated, had numerous picnics in the park, as well as cycled, walked and maybe even jogged through London's most famous park. 

But have you trotted through Hyde Park yet? 

Hyde Park stables offers a novel school holiday activity and probably a new way of travelling through the central London 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 galloping around the iconic park - sounds idyllic doesn't it?

Hyde Park Stables is one of the last standing mews with horses in central London and dates back some 300 years.

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

The stables cater to adults and children aged 4 and older and can cater to all experience levels - whether you're a show jumping pro or have never touched a horse in your life. 

Hyde Park rides are escorted by an experienced team member who also teach the rider in the park and on lessons in the stables' arena.

Prices start at £115.
