We start this walk by making our way into the most beautiful section of Hyde Park, to see the Italian Gardens and a fine Peter Pan statue. Then it’s onto the lovely shimmering Round Pond complete with birdlife, before passing by spectacular Kensington Palace. Then it all goes very Prince Albert, with his huge memorial, the Albert Hall and the site of the Great Exhibition (the Crystal Palace) which he helped organise. Then we see where the SAS ended a famous siege, before heading with the horse riders along Rotten Row, the length of what was the Crystal Palace. We finish where horse racing effectively started.
