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.
