Regent's Park Area Guide

Area overview


Regent's Park (officially called The Regent's Park) is a vast green space surrounded by highly desirable properties in the centre of London. One of the Royal Parks of London, it is in the north-western part of the capital, partly in the City of Westminster and partly in the London Borough of Camden. The 166 hectare (410 acre) park is mainly open parkland, with elegant and highly sought-after white stucco terraces designed by renowned royal architect, John Nash, bordering its southern, eastern and the majority of its western sides. Immediately south of the park are impressive Park Square and Park Crescent, also designed by Nash.

In property terms, the area termed “Regent’s Park” stretches from Marylebone Road to the south, Hampstead Road to the east, Lisson Road to the west and up towards Primrose Hill in the north. The area offers easy access to the West End, the City and Heathrow airport.

Regent’s Park’s famous Nash properties are spectacularly impressive (surprisingly few of them have been converted into flats) with eye-watering prices to match. The extended area offers a mix of Georgian facades, Victorian houses and Edwardian cottages, combined with a smattering of post-war estates.

Regent’s Park has two main roads - an outer ring road called the Outer Circle and an inner ring road called the Inner Circle which surrounds Queen Mary’s Gardens, the most carefully tended section of the park. Regent’s Park’s famous Open Air Theatre is also located here. Apart from two link roads between the circles, the park is reserved for pedestrians.

Regent’s Canal runs through the northern end of the park, connecting the Grand Union Canal to the former London docks, and immediately to the north of the Park is Primrose Hill, a park with fine views of Westminster and the City.

According to leading central London estate agent, Manors, those looking for a property for sale or to rent in the Regent’s Park area will enjoy a very high quality of life. The park itself offers a wide range of facilities and amenities including gardens, a lake with a heronry, waterfowl and a boating area, sports pitches, and children's playgrounds. The northern side of the park is the home of London Zoo and the headquarters of the Zoological Society of London and there are several public gardens with wonderful displays of flowers and specimen plants to enjoy.

Winfield House, the official residence of the US Ambassador, stands in private grounds in the western section of the park, and nearby is the domed London Central Mosque, better known as Regent's Park mosque, a highly visible landmark.

Located to the south of the Inner Circle is Regent's College, a consortium of institutes of higher education and home of the prestigious London Business School (LBS), as well as the European Business School London, British American College London (BACL) and Webster Graduate School among others.
