Skywatch Friday: The Bayley Café


Just up from the squirrel and overlooking the bandstand in Hyde Park is the Bayley Hall.

Bayley Hall forms the main architectural feature of Hyde Park and was built in 1939 on the former site of Newton Lodge. The hall is built over some of the original cellars and has elevated views over the bandstand and woodland dell. It is named after Marie Bayley, Charles James Ashton’s first wife.

In 2009 it became the Park Café.

  1. A touch forbidding. Not something I'd rush into :-)
    Maybe the coffee is good?

  2. Interesting history of the building...somehow it does not immediately say "cafe" to me...nice photo though! And I enjoyed the background you provided.
