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.
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.
