A lot of people know about speakers corner, where everyday people debate topics such as religion and politics. However, very few people have heard of the Reformers tree. The tree was located at this spot, where locals would protest against political issues such as voting rights. One particular day in 1866, people were protesting to give all men voting rights. Things turned violent and in the ensuing chaos, an Oak tree was burnt down. To symbolise this moment, this beautiful mosaic plaque was installed. It’s actually quite an impressive monument, and one of my favourites in Hyde Park.
