The park boasts 410 acres of green space teeming with wildlife and biodiversity, including a remarkable variety of wild bird species.

What's Regent's Park famous for?

Regent's Park, one of London's eight Royal Parks, is steeped in history and architectural grandeur. It was masterfully transformed in the early 1800s by architect John Nash and financiers James and Decimus Burton.

However, Regent's Park is famous for more than its heritage. It's home to London Zoo, the world's oldest scientific zoo, providing education and conservation of over 673 different species.

And for those with a penchant for horticulture, Queen Mary’s Gardens is a must-visit, boasting approximately 12,000 roses. The park also hosts an Open Air Theatre, offering a unique theatrical experience nestled amid nature's splendour.

Things to do in Regent's Park

Enjoy the picturesque walks along Regent’s Canal and explore the fascinating world of London Zoo. You can hire a boat at the boating lake when the sun's out or relax by the Triton Fountain with a good book. Queen Mary’s Garden, particularly in the first two weeks of June, turns into a fragrant wonder with roses in full bloom.

Don't miss a visit to the hidden waterfall and Japanese Island, an often-overlooked gem of the park. Watch a play at the Open Air Theatre or embark on an adventure along the tree-lined pathways of Avenue Gardens. From sports facilities to music festivals, Regent's Park is the hub of year-round activities.
