The Regent's Park, designed by John Nash, covers 395 acres and includes Queen Mary's Gardens which features more than 30,000 roses of 400 varieties, as well as the gloriously restored William Andrews Nestfield's Avenue Gardens.

With excellent sports facilities spanning nearly 100 acres it includes the largest outdoor sports area in central London.

The park also houses the Open Air Theatre, London Zoo, Primrose Hill, the country's largest free to access waterfowl collection and 100 species of wild bird.


This is a large, open area with splashes of plantings that line the walks. We did not visit (actually were not aware of) Queen Mary's Garden which sounds very nice indeed. Oh, well, perhaps on our next visit to London...
