The Regent's Park is the largest grass area for sports in Central London and offers a wide variety of activities, as well as an Open Air Theatre, the London Zoo and many cafes and restaurants.

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. Were he here today, Henry would hardly recognise the stylish gardens and sports fields that now stand in its place.

History and Architecture

The Regent's Park (including Primrose Hill) covers 197 hectares and like most of the other Royal Parks, it formed part of the vast chase appropriated by Henry VIII.

Landscape History

The Regent's Park we know today is a masterpiece of landscape design and town planning. But for much of its history it was isolated farmland and hunting chase on the wrong side of town.

Park Management Plans

The Management Plans are the principle strategic documents for the management of the Royal Parks. They are used in combination with other policy and strategy documents to assist Park Managers in the management of these Grade 1 listed landscapes.
