Regents Park - London visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Regents Park' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Greater London.
Regents Park is one of the Royal Parks in London and a popular tourist attraction. Officially called 'The Regents Park', it covers 487 acres, filled with formal planted gardens, trees, open sports areas, cafes, boating lake, playgrounds, theatre and more. Regents Park holds various events, festivals and exhibitions throughout the year and some of the sports areas may be rented.
The northern end of Regents Park is bounded by the Regents Canal, beyond which is Primrose Hill which offers some of the best views in London. Also at the northern end is London Zoo, a top London attraction with free entrance to London Pass holders.
This virtual tour of Regents Park has numerous 360° panoramas linked to a map of the park. These virtual tour images include:
Avenue Gardens - formal planted gardens at the southern end of Regents Park designed by William A. Nesfield. Designated a dog free and ball free zone.
The Hub - new sports facility and cafe in the north section of Regents Park.
Boating Lake - with numerous ducks, gese and swans. Boats may be hired in the summer months
These panoramas show different parts of Regents Park during different seasons, and some even show the park covered in snow, a rare event in London. Regents Park has several different Cherry Trees which bloom beautifully in the spring. Other images show the same trees in autumn and covered in snow one winter. Whatever the season, the park always has something to offer to catch the eye.
Historically, Regents Park was planned by John Nash in 1811 at the request of the Prince Regent (later King George IV). It was first opened to the public in 1845, initially for two days a week. Now the park is open 7 days a week from dawn to dusk, which means that opening times vary with the seasons.
