  • Visitor Information

Serpentine Solar ShuttleGliding noiselessly across the Serpentine in Hyde Park, the Solar Shuttle is an eco-friendly way to get from one end of the lake to the other. Its creator Christoph Behling originally designed a solar-powered shuttle boat in Hamburg to ferry passengers across the city's harbour, and in doing so sparked a buzz around the future of solar power across the globe. At 14.5 metres long the boat is thought to be the largest of its kind and is capable of carrying 42 passengers between the north and south banks of the lake. The craft cruises at a very leisurely pace of just 5mph and is powered by two electric engines. It is completely silent and most importantly totally pollution-free. The company behind the boat have pledged that when the boat is not in use and docked, any surplus electricity generated by the boat's solar panels will be fed back into the National Grid. When in action the boat ferries park visitors between the boat house on the north side of the Serpentine up to the Princess of Wales memorial fountain on the south side, near Kensington Gardens.
