Hyde Park Corner is a very busy junction in Central London, situated at the south east corner of London's Hyde Park. The junction in its current form opened on 17 October 1962 when Park Lane to the north was dualled: this involved the construction of new sections of road to the east and south, taking traffic away from Wellington Arch.

Hyde Park Corner

During the 2007-2011 westwards extension of the London Congestion Charge, the A4 underneath was the quieter road, connecting two halves of the congestion charge zone together whilst the much busier London Inner Ring Road circumnavigates the roundabout. This movement was taken into account with signalisation of the junction in the 1990s.

The twin tunnels that form the Piccadilly Underpass run some distance apart in order to avoid a monument in the middle of the junction.

Access to Constitution Hill is restricted at weekends.
