Regent's Park
Fountain in Queen Mary's Gardens, Regent's Park

This area was owned by the Dukes of Portland until Henry VIII purchased the land and used it as one of his many hunting grounds.

In 1811 the land was redesigned and landscaped transforming it into a well-kept park that opened to the public in 1838.

Going for a walk in Regent’s Park

Regent’s Park is a green oasis and is the largest area in the city dedicated to sports. Londoners can enjoy different sports in the park such as hockey, tennis, football (soccer), rugby and athletics, among many other outdoor activities. It is also possible to row in the park's artificial lake.  

Although it is famous for its sports, Regent’s Park also offers its visitors beautiful plants, with over 400 types of roses, a dazzling lake, which is home to many species of birds, neoclassical villas, an open-air theatre and even a mosque. Last but not least, the park is also home to the London Zoo, which opened in 1828.
