Regent's Park Hotels - London

Mini guide to Regent's Park

     

Originally part of the Middlesex Forest, this land became a royal hunting ground and the Prince Regent, later George IV, commissioned the architect John Nash to create the park now known as Regents Park here in 1817. This large park is a popular weekend getaway for Londoners, with the London Zoo, Regent's Canal, beautiful Regency buildings (especially Cumberland Terrace), boating lakes, playgrounds, tennis courts and open-air theatre and is the largest outdoor grass area for sports in London. It is also possible to reach this area on a traditional long boat on Regent's Canal.

Stroll down the Broad Walk, leading north, to reach the London Zoo with its 36-acre conservation centre that contains more than 650 species. The collection includes invertebrates, reptiles, fish, birds, and small and large mammals such as lions, tigers, gorillas, elephants, giraffes and bears.

Every year there is a summer festival in Regents Park, with events in July and August for children aged 4-10 at the Park's four playgrounds. This includes events such as clown shows, magicians and puppets. Beyond Regents Park is Primrose hill, which affords some of the best views of central London.

The Regents Park area is centrally located to various areas of the city, making it very convenient for visitors. Access is easy to the Baker Street, Marylebone, Camden, Oxford Circus and St. John's Wood areas, all well served by the tube. Easiest tube access to Regents Park itself is from either Camden Town (Northern Line) or Regents Park (Bakerloo Line).
