Speakers Corner at Hyde Park is the most famous location for free speech in the world. Speeches and debates have been taking place at the north-east end of Hyde Park since the 1872. It symbolises popular struggles in Britain for the right to vote, speak and assemble.
Speakers here may talk on any subject, as long as the police consider their speeches lawful, although this right is not restricted to Speakers’ Corner only. In practice the police tend to be tolerant and therefore intervene only when they receive a complaint.
