Regent’s Park

photo_regentsduckThe Regent’s Park covers 166 hectares (410 acres) and includes stunning rose gardens with more than 30,000 roses of 400 varieties.  The Park has excellent sports facilities and with nearly 100 acres available is the largest outdoor sports area in Central London.  It is a great place to play  grass sports and offers a wide variety of activities, as well as an Open Air Theatre, the London Zoo and many cafes and restaurants.

Henry VIII appropriated The Regent’s Park for use as a hunting ground, which he considered to be an invigorating ride from Whitehall Palace. At that time, the only boundaries were a ditch and a rampart. Where he here today, Henry would hardly recognise the stylish gardens and sports fields that now stand in its place.
