Hyde Park was the playground of the rich and respectable in Victorian London. Older people drove out in their carriage-and-fours, or phaeton with matched pair, while the young rode out on horseback each day.

Here the young men 'strutted their stuff' on hired horses, while marriageable young women demonstrated an elegant seat.

Introductions were made, relationships were formed, and future partners discerned through the fairly informal rituals of this Royal Park.

Events in In Chancery are sparked here for Val Dartie and his cousin Holly Forsyte.
