Hyde Park, London W2 | 16 minutes walk from Paddington
This bastion of British free public speech and free assembly can prove one of the most absorbingly unique, theatrical activities the city has to offer. Located on the corner of Park Lane and Cumberland Gate, opposite Marble Arch tube, Speakers' Corner is the spiritual home of the British democratic tradition of soapbox oratory. Every Sunday since the right of free assembly was recognised in 1872 in the Royal Parks and Garden's Act, people from all walks of life have gathered to listen to speeches about anything and everything.
When you are planning your next visit to London, you can stay at Hotel Indigo London Paddington and explore Speakers Corner, a vocal London attraction.Book Now
