As I got to my hotel at about 7 am and nothing seemed to be open till 10, I decided to go for a walk in Hyde Park, which was very near my bed and breakfast hotel.
I have never seen Hyde Park in summer, it was beautiful. I walked around it on several days, all of them sunny and summery. I couldn't get over the size of the trees, so many of them were huge. Another lovely sight was the workers setting off through such a lovely space - what a great way to start your working day.
I then turned around to walk on and came across a rider training his horse in some sort of dressage stepping - I can't remember what it is called, it is like the Lipizanner horses.
