Regent’s Park

Regent’s Park covers 410 acres and is one of the Royal Parks of London.

Discover Queen Mary’s Gardens with 12,000 roses – Sylvia Plath described it as a ‘wonderland’ – and the Avenue Gardens. These gardens are found in the south-east corner of Regent’s Garden and are made up of two distinct areas: the Italian Garden and the English Garden.

The Italian Garden was designed by W A Nesfield between 1863 and 1865 and is often referred to as the Nesfield Gardens. With long perspectives, the design is broken up with urns and tiered fountains. The beds are planted with seasonal bedding plants.

The English Gardens are to the east of the Italian Garden. Nesfield’s son, Markham, designed these gardens with a mound, grass lawns and flowering cherries.

The Royal Parks is currently developing proposals for a new garden to commemorate the life of Elizabeth II. It will be situated close to St John’s Lodge Garden and is expected to open in 2026, on what would have been the late Queen’s 100th birthday.

To the north of Regent’s Park is Primrose Hill.

The Park is open from dawn until dusk – check the website for details.

Free entry although some areas and events are by ticket only.
