Road Closures in Hyde Park

The Royal Parks has written to inform the Friends that all Hyde Park roads will be subject to closures during the upcoming Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park concert series.

The current terrorist threat level remains at severe. Royal Parks have been working with the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) to review their security measures and they have agreed that closing the roads during the concerts is an essential mitigation measure to reduce all possible risk to park visitors and concert goers.

To clarify:

  • West Carriage Drive and South Carriage Drive – will be closed from 11:00 on the 5th, 6th and 7th July and the12th, 13th and 14th July 2019.
  • North Carriage Drive – normal and advanced agreed road closures will be in place between 16th June and 23rdJuly 2019.
  • To facilitate the operation of these road closures The Royal Parks will be suspending all on-road parking on event days, and Serpentine and Triangle Car Parks will be closed from 11:00.

Royal Parks recognise that the closures will cause disruption and they apologise in advance for this. They will be working closely with their partners (Westminster City Council, Transport for London and MPS), as well as local and national press to advise the public of the road closures and dissuade people from driving to the area on those days. Their event partners will also advise ticket holders to use public transport.

Royal Parks are extremely grateful for our ongoing support and patience at this time.
