Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens and the National Portrait Gallery
🚌 14:00 Transfer by bus from the hotel
Set right in the heart of London, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens offers both world-class events and concerts together with plenty of quiet places to relax and unwind. Dip your toes in the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain, brave an open water swim in the Serpentine, or just admire the views across the lake.
Did you know? Hyde Park has a long history as a site of protest, and still hosts rallies and marches today. Visit Speakers’ Corner on a Sunday morning to hear people from all walks of life share their views. Hyde Park is one of London’s eight Royal Parks and covers an area of 350 acres.
After the tour of the parks, travel across to the National Portrait Gallery for a private tour. Containing the most extensive collection of portraits in the world, it is a compact and intimate space, displaying more than four hundred years of British portrait painting, from the 16th century right through to the present day. After a major refit, the Gallery reopened in June 2023.

#2 Sporting Activity: Golf
09:30 – 18:30
🚌 Transfer by bus from the hotel at 09:30
Many may be aware of the palace at Hampton Court Palace but not necessarily its golf course. Within the grounds at Home Park, it offers a truly unique opportunity to play a traditional parkland course at one of the country’s most famous royal parks.
As golfers of ability, the new owners take great pride in the presentation of their courses. At 6,500 yards, the par 71 design meanders through hundreds of mature trees in a naturally free draining location.
Under the gaze of fallow deer, it’s easy to forget how close you are to the City of London but not hard to see why Golf Monthly features it on its ‘must play’ shortlist.
