Regent's Park, London

4.8
#3 of 176 in Parks in London
Once hunting grounds for Henry VIII, Regent's Park is a historic fine-weather resting place, and upper-crust residence, for Londoners. The landscaped park is ribboned with paved walking and cycling routes that are wide enough to share with other pedestrians. Bring a blanket and a picnic to enjoy a bite near the shores of the manmade lake, where swans drift atop the water. While in the area, look for architectural gems, such as the International Student's House, Regent's Park College, and numerous villas and terraces that decorate the acreage. The park has its own Tube station, so it's easy to reach from anywhere in London. Plan my day in London using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • Very much enjoyed my walk through Regent's Park. The size is incredible--so much to see and do. My favorite part was the rose garden. I was there in early September and the pale pink roses are the mos...  more »

  • Even in November, the Park was beautiful. The rose garden was still nice, everything was green and what majestic trees. We loved!

  • What a different the weather makes when it comes to visits to Regent's Park. Not that we have any problem with the winter when you can find more solitude at this Royal Park, but Regent's Park really comes alive and shows its best stuff during the warmer months. During the summer, the lake is full of waterfowl, young chicks and paddle-boaters casually enjoying their time on the water. Another benefit to summer visits is that the Open Air Theatre is in session so you can enjoy outdoor performances in the evening. Further, if you visit during early June, you can see the excellent Queen Mary Rose Garden in full bloom. This is a treat in an of itself and something that we greatly miss when passing through Regent's park during winter visits. Overall, we highly rate Regent's Park during the summer when the Open Air Theatre and Queen Mary Rose Garden able to be seen and enjoyed. This is one of the Royal Parks that is well worth spending time during summer visits to London.
  • Nice venue for study and learning. Lots of cafes to bug coffee and lively selection of cooked foods, salads, refreshments etc in the main dinning hall that would out a five star restaurant to shame. Excellent facilities. Depending on where your class is, it can be. A fair climb up stairs and finding toilets near you is not easy as they tend to be down a floor or in the basement. Set in great park and lively grounds, easy transport links and cafes, shops near buy. Good transport links. This is a nice place to study and learn.
  • Regent's Park is near my home so I visit it quite often. It is a large park with one of its entrances near Baker street station another near Lords Cricket Ground a third at the bottom of Primrose Hill and one near Camden Town. There is a boating lake an open air theater, playing fields, a running track the spectacular Queen Mary rose garden and London zoo. The Regent's canal runs through it and you can walk along the towpath to Camden Town. I, being boring, like to walk through the rose garden on a Sunday and see how my rose bushes compare, you do have to watch out for crouched figures photographing roses. Unfortunately my roses don't seem to be making the same effort as the Regent's Park ones. However last week I went to the open air theater to see Little Shop of Horrors which was extremely good so perhaps I'm not totally boring. There is a cafe in the park and a couple of stalls that do snacks. During the year you find many events being held there. Well worth a visit.
  • Absolutely love this place... It's brilliant. Huge park in North London with a boating lake to chill out on. Depending upon the days you visit, there are different activities going on from football matches to Baseball. Nice big wide open area in the middle where you can look for a huge distance which us strange being in London. Make sure you have 20p if you need the look or you'll pay a £1 like I did, as no change is given ☹️ Loads of parking all around the perimeter but make sure you buy enough time to save having to pop back. Even a great view of the BT Tower from the right spot. London Zoo is also on the park but at £27.50 per adult it ain't a cheap family day out!
  • It’s beautiful and clean with lots of selfie spots. 🛶Boats are cheaper before 12pm. A wonderful variety of people everywhere who are friendly, polite and mostly mind their own business. ☕️ The cafe was nice. I’d give it 4*. I saw wasps. 🦆The birds by the lake are very calm and quite big. 💯
