Will to Win, Hyde Park

As we slide into September, I’m still trying to cling onto those summer days – I’m not quite ready for Autumn just yet!

Earlier this year I was invited to spend the afternoon at Will to Win in Hyde Park. I feel like it’s always so easy to stay in your own little bubble in London, so it was lovely to spend some time in Hyde Park, where I haven’t really been since I moved back to the UK.

The Will to Win centre in Hyde Park has so many facilities, most of which are open year-round – on our trip, we did some lawn bowling, as well as have a go on the 9-hole putting course (which I’m terrible at). Most people head down for the tennis, as they have two mini tennis courts and six hard courts, set in an absolutely stunning location, with a view of The Shard, too!

Even if golf or tennis isn’t really your thing, the cafe has a great selection of cheeses and some Sipsmith cocktails, too – I was particularly taken with the London Cup (which tastes just like Pimm’s). I also really liked the G&T ice cream, too, which was really unusual.

It was such a wonderful way to spend the afternoon – get yourself down there before the summer finally ends!

I was invited by Will to Win to spend an afternoon with them - but I don't blog about boring afternoons, so all opinions are my own!

    I didn’t’ know about this. Great way to spend the last days of Summer into Autumn. R

    • Thanks Rosana – it really was, might have to get a few more days in before it officially gets too cold! x

  • Sounds like the perfect way to spend a day enjoying the last bits of summer and of course cheese too! 🙂

    What a quintessentially British way to spend a sunny afternoon. I never knew this was in Hyde Park – and yes, if the sporting activities are not quite on my menu atm, those cocktails are! Cheers!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve never heard of the Will to Win centre in Hyde Park before! It sounds brilliant. The food also looks amazing from that cafe. I’ll certainly check it out next time I visit London 🙂 It sounds like a great time was had! 🙂 xx

  • Ooh this sounds like it was a lovely event, all the food looks so yummy! I also love the look of the gin and tonic ice cream! xo
