Overview

In the middle of the urban sprawl of London, Hyde Park sits apart. A large park, one of the largest in central London, it boasts a fancy Grand Entrance; wide archways and ionic columns run over one hundred feet. And with good reason. Beyond it is a stretch of beautiful greenery, trees and walkways split into two by the Serpentine lake. There are memorials and historical sites, a rose garden and the notable Upside Down Tree as well as the Speakers' Corner, where open air discussions and protests are not only allowed, but encouraged.

The stark contrast to the beauty on the ground is the unsettling tunnels below. Secret to most, only the bravest have ventured under the park, and none know just how many there are or what's to be found in them.
