Good experience and interesting debates! A lot of knowledgeable people who love a good debate! Definately worth going to on a sunday and then enjoy a nice trip across the road to Edgware road for a nice meal!

Disappointed to find no speakers? Now it may be that Justin Beiber was on in Hyde Park or it may be free speech has gone! Either way sad not to here out spoken opinion.

Speakers Corner is on Sunday afternoons. But when there are big pop concerts most of the speakers stay away.

Interesting human debates. A people gathering of all kinds looking for a place to be heard. Not all are single contributors, some with organisation behind them

The Speaker's Corner in the north west part of Hyde Park is great to see. There is no set schedule, so you could be unlucky, but usually there are several speakers, each with their own audience. Mingle and enjoy.

Sunday afternoons you will find this part of Hyde Park full of speakers. There will be some crazy people and some rational people speaking. It is always refreshing to go somewhere that you can say whatever you want without being under the threat of government...More

We grabbed a coffee and listened to speakers corner while our children played football in the park next to us. It was very interesting and everyone was happy including the children. Worth a look for some London culture!

I have been here a few times, but I happened to see nobody making speeches. Maybe, I should come here on Sunday. Hyde Park is wonderful in any way without any speeches, of course.

The best time to be there would be between 8 & 11 am.between these times you will get to hear a complete range of speakers . From the sensible to the utterly comical !!
