Interesting human debates. A people gathering of all kinds looking for a place to be heard. Not all are single contributors, some with organisation behind them

The Speaker's Corner in the north west part of Hyde Park is great to see. There is no set schedule, so you could be unlucky, but usually there are several speakers, each with their own audience. Mingle and enjoy.

We grabbed a coffee and listened to speakers corner while our children played football in the park next to us. It was very interesting and everyone was happy including the children. Worth a look for some London culture!

I have been here a few times, but I happened to see nobody making speeches. Maybe, I should come here on Sunday. Hyde Park is wonderful in any way without any speeches, of course.

This is a part of the history of London and one which goes back many years where free speech was not as freely allowed as it is today and people could use this area to discuss and talk about their passions whether political, religious or...More

This is stomped in history and us still today a place where people can come to exercise freedom of speach. People even still stand on old crates or banana boxes when doing their speaches.
