The Regent’s Park Area Guide

Guide to The Regent’s Park

The Area

Situated amidst the energy and excitement of London’s central north-west, Regent’s Park is a world-renowned destination in its own right. Steeped in history with remarkable residences and impeccable architecture, this area combines large open spaces with leafy pathways, elegant gardens and the city centre’s largest outdoor sports facility.

Properties bordering the outer peripheries of the park’s 395 acres are traditional in style, including regal mansions and white stucco terraces. Beyond the park’s Outer Circle, many properties in the area boast similar architectural allure.

Amenities

Regent’s Park hosts internationally celebrated events including Frieze Art Fair, the Taste of London and its own award-winning Open Air Theatre. The park’s own Queen Mary’s Gardens offers an idyllic meander through the city’s largest collection of roses, numbering 12,000 roses in total.

History

One of London’s eight Royal Parks, Regent’s Park was hunting land reserved for the royals until 1646. Architect and friend of Prince Regent, John Nash, designed the area into the public space it is now.

The surrounding palatial properties, lake and canal were original features of Nash’s development. The neo-classical grandeur of his design legacy includes Cornwall Terrace, Chester Terrace and Cornwall Terrace. Easily recognisable even today, owned to the preservation works of these Grade 1 listed buildings. Several of the original properties offer an exciting opportunity to take up residency in one of their grand apartments.

Previous well-known residents to this historic area includes fashion designer Tom Ford, artist Damien Hirst, model Kate Moss and chef Jamie Oliver.
