Regent's Park

Regent's Park is one of London's most popular open spaces, covering 410 acres in north-west London. Originally a hunting ground for Henry VIII, it remained a royals-only retreat long after it was formally designed by John Nash in 1811; only in 1845 did it open to the public as a spectacular shared space. Attractions run from the animal odours and noises of London Zoo to the enchanting Open Air Theatre. Various food and music festivals pitch up here over the summer and rowing boat hire, bandstands, beautiful rose gardens (with some 30,000 roses and 400 varieties), tennis courts, ice-cream stands and eateries (including the delightful Garden Café) complete the picture. Regent’s Park has several playgrounds, but the most interesting is at Hanover Gate where, in 2010, a timber treehouse area for older kids was built within a large sandpit next to the boating lake and existing playground.

Having recently visited Regents Park after over 10 years since my last visit, it was a breath of fresh air in a busy city. Crossing the lake while watching a heron relax in the mid-day sun, felt like I was a million miles away from the sweaty tube station on baker street. Visited the open air theatre for an afternoon of laughter watching the dinosaur zoo show .. an experience which is a must whilst they are there ! A great day out, a park you can while away the whole day in - highly recommended.
