Serpentine Lake information
Hyde Park is separated from Kensington Gardens by the squiggly L-shaped Serpentine lake, which was created when the Westbourne River was dammed in the 1730s. At Christmas, it's the site of a brass-balls swimming race, and in summer people like to rent pedalos. The latest attraction is a solar ferry (adult/child around £3/1.50), going veeerry slowly from the boathouse to the Lido Café. It's in operation year-round they assure us, although we presume it must depend on the weather.
