Catering outlets
Please note that due to current circumstances, our catering outlets may be operating slightly different opening times and a reduced menu offer. Updated opening times for most of our cafes can be found here or please contact the outlet you are planning to visit directly. Telephone numbers are available on the outlet webpages.

Public toilets
From Monday 10th August all public toilets within The Royal Parks will be open between 08:00 and 19:00*  

As exceptions to this, the Regent's Park (Playground and The Hub external toilets) blocks will be open between 10:00 and 19:00. 

The Regent's Park (Chester Road) block will be open between 09:00 and 20:00 until the end of August due to localised evening issues. To allow this block to stay open later, the COVID clean needs to take place in the morning and so this block will open at 9am.

*Public toilets at catering outlets are for customers only, and will only be available during the outlet opening hours. Details of which toilets are open across our parks can be found here.


Please ensure you regularly check our updates page for the very latest information about park closures and access to facilities.


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.

The Regent’s Park is named after Prince Regent, sometimes known as the playboy prince, who later became King George IV (1762-1830).

We are the charity for London's eight amazing Royal Parks

We care for each of London's Royal Parks for everyone now and in the future to explore, value and enjoy.

Covering over 5,000 acres of historic parkland, the parks provide beautiful green spaces right in the heart of the capital where you can escape the hustle and bustle of the city. They're a place for you to relax and unwind, exercise and clear your mind. If it's history and architecture you're after, we have hundreds of buildings, statues and memorials, giving a fascinating insight into London's heritage.

A statement on public memorials

The Royal Parks cares for a large number of statues and memorials which mark historical figures and events. All of these are on public display in our parks and open spaces. We believe that we should provide fair and balanced information about the individuals and events that are being commemorated and set out the context in which the memorials were erected.

Given the understandable concern about memorials, particularly those that are considered to celebrate figures who supported and profited from slavery, we will be undertaking a review of the major memorials in our care. This will include looking at the interpretation and information we provide to ensure that we do not provide a sanitised or one-sided view of history.

Our organisation seeks to support equality, diversity and inclusion in all of its work and continues to do all it can to achieve this.

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!
