Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill
Regent’s Park is one of the Royal Parks of London, straddling the City of Westminster and the London Borough of Camden. It is home to Regent’s College, a private higher education college, and the London Zoo.
London Zoo has one of the largest collections of animals in the United Kingdom with over 16,800 residents. It is beautifully set in an area of 36 acres with the Regent’s Canal running through it. An excellent day out for the whole family, a price list for admission can be found here: https://www.zsl.org/zsl-london-zoo//visit/entry-costs,118,AR.html
Many sports are played in Regent’s Park and it is very popular with runners and cyclists. There are three playgrounds for children and boating on the lake.
The Open Air Theatre is a glorious permanent venue boasting one of the longest bars of any London theatre as well as a barbeque and picnic area for patrons to enjoy their own food. Many famous actors have performed there including Benedict Cumberbatch, Dame Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes and Zoe Wannamaker. The Open Air Theatre is an excellent way to round off a day relaxing, exploring and soaking up all that Regent’s Park has to offer, however it is only open during a sixteen week summer season so please check what’s on and book tickets in advance to avoid disappointment. http://www.openairtheatre.org/
There are nine terraces and nine villas in Regent’s Park, including the residences of the American Ambassador and Prince Jefri Bolkiah of Brunei. Some of the villas have beautiful gardens open to the public.
Primrose Hill is located on the northern side of Regent’s Park and provides clear views of central London to the south-east and Belsize Park and Hampstead to the north. It is also the name of the surrounding district, one of the most expensive and exclusive residential areas in London, home to many famous and influential people including the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson.
