Location Guide to Regents Park
The Regent’s Park is one of the Royal Parks of London, located in the north-west, partly in the London Borough of Camden and partly in the City of Westminster. The park itself and the elegant white stucco terraces lining the south, east and most of the west side of the park were designed by John Nash. He also created an Outer Circle – a great ring road enclosing 487 acres of the park, as well as an Inner Circle surrounding Queen Mary’s Rose Gardens and the Open Air Theatre. The park also houses London Zoo, Primrose Hill (the hill, not the area) and the country’s largest free to access waterfowl collection and 100 species of wild bird.
Henry VIII originally appropriated The Regent’s Park (which was mostly farmland at the time with a ditch and rampart as its boundary) for use as a hunting ground. These days, stylish gardens and sports fields now stand in its place.

More about the area:
Regent’s Park is one of London’s biggest parks and outdoor sports facilities, and it’s surrounded by rail stations, landmarks and grand properties. The buildings are large, but thanks to Westminster Council, the council tax isn’t.
The Royal Academy of Music, Westminster University and the London Business School are all in the area, creating a busy, youthful and international atmosphere. Transport links are excellent – you can get to Europe on the train from St. Pancras station, as well as many other places in the UK via King’s Cross and Euston.
The convenience for the business districts, shopping and entertainment in Zone 1 is balanced by the calming feel of Regent’s Canal and the boating lake. The park contains an open air theatre and London Zoo, making it easier to head out for a leisurely Sunday afternoon with friends and family.
At a Glance
Originally there were 374 Outer Circle houses; many became prestigious corporate offices and educational institutes. They are now reverting to residential.
Cornwall Terrace, in the south-west corner, has become eight double-fronted mansions ranging from 8,000 to 15,000 sq ft, with views of the park’s boating lake. Priced from £29 million, they mark an elegant residential rebirth for the park.

Lifestyle & Recreation
The nearest place to shop, a short walk across Regent’s Park, is the calm, unblighted village of St John’s Wood, where the pretty, upmarket high street is the place for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Here the pace is slower, people know each other and you see the same faces. Americans love it and an axis has formed with the banking community at Canary Wharf, a convenient hop on the Jubilee line. The wide choice of homes spans from large, elegant Regency villas to small mews houses.
The Regent’s Park is the largest grass area for sports in Central London including tennis/netball courts, a running track, trim trail, cricket pitches and nets, softball, football and rugby pitches. In addition, there are four children’s playgrounds each with an attendant and boating on the main lake. Lord’s cricket ground is just a short walk away.
