The Regent’s Park combines large open spaces with tree-lined pathways, formal gardens, and four children’s playgrounds. It has excellent sports facilities, and contains central London’s largest outdoor sports area.

Walk through the elegant flowerbeds in the Avenue Gardens, see more than 12,000 roses in Queen Mary’s Gardens, or hire a rowing boat and join the ducks on the boating lake. Visit the Open Air Theatre and London Zoo, then take a stroll up Primrose Hill for excellent views of the London skyline.

The park also provides a warm welcome for wildlife. It has a large wetland area and is home to around 100 species of wild bird and a breeding population of hedgehogs.

Mission: Invertebrate

Mission: Invertebrate is a project that challenges us to understand the grassland invertebrates that call the Royal Parks their home.

There are lots of ways you can get involved with Mission: Invertebrate. All activities are completely free and are happening across all eight Royal Parks and Brompton Cemetery, meaning there is a chance for everyone to get involved!
