Upcoming road closures on Sunday 6th October 2019.

Please note the upcoming road closures on Sunday 6th October 2019.

You may have seen in the media that Extinction Rebellion is planning to protest, again, in central London from Sunday 6th October for two weeks. The Royal Parks have received reports that the group may be planning to camp in Hyde Park on Sunday 6th October, and because of this The Royal Parks have made the decision to close all vehicle gates into the park on this day, to prevent any unauthorised vehicles entering and occupying the park.

On Sunday 6th October 2019, all roads within Hyde Park will be closed. Please be aware that this means that the car parks will also be closed. Pedestrian access will remain open between 05:00-midnight as usual.

If you are a contractor or resident who has a vehicle permit for Hyde Park and require vehicle access on Sunday 6th October, please ensure you have your vehicle permit with you and use Edinburgh Gate to enter and exit the park. At Edinburgh Gate, security will check permits and only let accredited vehicles in and out of the park.

The Royal Parks apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause and appreciate your co-operation.
