45: Speakers' Corner in Hyde Park

Speakers CornerThe bus goes around the traffic island at Marble Arch. On the left in Hyde Park is the location of Speakers' Corner where anyone can turn up to exercise their right to free speech. At the weekend, there is normally a small crowd gathered here to listen and heckle, but nobody regards this as a venue for serious debate. In the distance, the large grassed area is where the concerts in Hyde Park are staged. The Rolling Stones played here in 1968 and in 2005 this was the site for the Live8 charity event when over 1000 performers were seen worldwide on 182 TV networks.
