Regent's Park is in the middle of the city but allows you to have a break from it. Queen Elizabet Gardens are always well manicured (no matter the season) so go for a bug walk, look at the flowers and feel good.
The lakeside is also wonderful and deserves a cone of ice cream to go with it.

Regents Parks is wonderful, a sanctuary to escape to away from the hustle and bustle of London. The Rose Garden, in the Inner Circle, is especially beautiful & restful - it is exceptionally well maintained. As well as the famous Rose Garden, with a wide variety of Roses, the rest of the Inner Circle has been beautifully landscaped with many species of flower beds, waterfall and fountain. There are lots of lovely spots to have picnics. The Cafeteria and restaurant are okay - not great, but handy for a soft drinks / ice cream for the kids, sandwiches etc. Queen Mary's Garden is also lovely, it is in the OUTER circle, there are lots of benches to sit on, rest and relax. There are areas in the outer circle to play football, frisbee etc. ( no ball games allowed in the Inner Circle). During the summer the bandstand plays music most afternoons and there is a boating lake. The Outdoor Theatre is virtually all Shakespeare plays, when the weather is good it gets completely sold out - so always best to book in advance. The Theatre is lovely, nice food and a great buzz... albeit a bit too busy for my liking. It's nice to take your own picnic. It's best to get there using public transport - there isn't a lot of parking, however if you must go by car - then make sure you 'pay & display' as the wardens are pretty vigilant and parking is expensive.

I love all the royal parks in London. Each one is special in some way. Regents Park is special for the Nash Terraces around it . . . It was a speculative property development which went bust in the early 19th century, or there would be more terraces and villas. The rose garden is out of this world in the spring. There are big public spaces and smaller spaces for lovers. Great for people watching.

Regents park is always a good place to wander and you may even hear the animals from the zoo as you walk by in the evening. Easy to walk from Primrose Hill to Marylebone road.. even Regents Street!

It was amazing to walk along the trails in such a beautiful park and stroll to the lake. I had just finished reading my Grandfather's memoirs of his time as a soldier for the Canadian Scottish Regiment in WWI and he described how he and his brother took a row boat for a spin at Regent's park. Being able to do that as well was so special. What a magical place!
