Hyde park is not only a big favourite for tourists and families, it’s also a popular and central gay cruising area in London. The most popular cruising area is the South East corner, between the Rose garden and the Memorial monument. The park closes at night, but late enough so gay guys have enough time to come when it's dark and enjoy the privacy of the bushes, after tourists and families are gone. Closest tube station is Hyde Park Corner; the cruising area is only 100/200m from the station. Great mix of gay guys come here, especially in Summer.
