Hyde Park

Providing all the amenities that you would normally find in a city centre

Hyde Park is an increasingly popular student area, because of its close proximity to the University and the park.

Public Transport and Road links

Hyde Park has a reliable and frequent bus service, although the University and even the city centre are easily accessible by walking. The main motorway network is very easy to reach with the M62, M621, M1 and A1 a relative short distance.


Hyde Park is home to some interesting independent shops such as the Retro Boutique. Whilst there are no Supermarkets in Hyde Park, there are a number of convenience stores, such as a Sainsbury’s local.


There is a vibrant independent scene in Hyde Park and the wonderful Brudenell Social Club plays host to some fantastic gigs. The famous, Hyde Park Picture House, is a period, independent cinema, showing arty films. The Hyde Park pub and Royal Park pub, ensure that there is a good pub scene. The park is an oasis of green in the middle of the urban Hyde Park and is a real hive of activity in the summer, with footballers, skaters, barbequers and sun bathers all out in force.


There are some really interesting, independent restaurants in Hyde Park, such as the Bangkok Café Thai noodle bar, the Clock Café and Symposium Greek restaurant.
