Come along with us to relive our London tour by Classic Coach.
It's 8:56 AM when we drove through one of London's shopping areas.
The Grand Entrance to Hyde Park
It consists of about 107 feet of fluted Ionic columns, with three carriage entrance archways and two pedestrian entrances. The gates are of iron which was bronzed.
The oldest part of Hyde Park once belonged to the manor of Ebury. This land had an area of one hide (anything between 60 and 120 acres, or 0.24 to 0.49 kmē), which gave the park its name. The land was acquired by Henry VIII in 1536 from the monks of Westminster Abbey.
