The stunning parks around Mayfair village are top of our list of the best places to exercise in Mayfair. Hyde Park alone has more than 350 acres of greenery to explore, taking in Kensington Gardens, an outdoor swimming lake (the Serpentine) and a café to refuel after a chilly morning dip. Looking for a full day’s stroll or to add a few extra miles onto your run? Green Park and St James’s Park are just round the corner. For more information on this leafy area head over to our Park Resident’s Guide.
