Visit British Summer Time Hyde Park’s open house all this week

British Summer Time has now become a staple of the summer in London.

Hyde Park is taken over by the festival, which has seen Taylor Swift, Take That and Kylie all headline.

Whilst Carole King and Florence and the Machine have already impressed this year, it’s not too late to get a piece of the action – and totally free.


The festival is hosting its annual Open House – a host of weekday activities in between the weekends of musical line-ups.
