At 410 acres, Regent's Park is the largest single Royal Park in the area of Central London, making it somewhat larger than nearby Hyde Park. It is a popular refuge where locals love to come and trade the bustle of the city for the sights and sounds of nature.

There are many things to do in Regent's Park. Major attractions in the park include the world renowned London Zoo located at the northern end and the Open Air Theatre where outdoor plays are enjoyed throughout the summertime. Other features include a boating lake, tennis courts, children's playgrounds a bandstand, and numerous villas. In the southeast corner there is a formal Italian Garden and an informal English Garden.

The park has a 4.3 km road skirting the perimeter called the Outer Circle and another circular road forming a small circle inside the park called the Inner Circle. Inside this inner circle are the carefully manicured Queen Mary's Gardens. Other than these two roads and two roads linking them, the park is only accessible to pedestrians. Three sides of the park are lined with the stucco terraces of homes designed by renowned London architect John Nash during the early 1800s.

While visiting Regent's Park you may also want to stroll into adjoining Primrose Hill Park at the northern end. From this elevated vantage point you will enjoy some spectacular views across London and you can also see down into the London Zoo.

To make sure you don't go hungry while visiting the park, there are several good places to eat within. These include the Boathouse Cafe, the Garden Cafe, the Honest Sausage and the Cow and Coffee Bean and a couple of Refreshment Points.

The park opens at 5am daily and closes around 8pm.
