Regents Park is one of London’s most beautiful open spaces. Situated in the north-western part of central London, the 166 hectare (410 acre) park is one of the Royal Parks of London and is a mixture of open parkland, beautifully designed gardens, a lake, a boating area, sports pitches, and children’s playgrounds.
The south, east and most of the west side of the park are lined with elegant white stucco terraces of houses designed by John Nash. Running through the northern end of the park is the Regent’s Canal. And at the north end of the park is London Zoo.
