Make sure you've packed your gym gear if you plan a visit to Regent's Park. Of course, there is plenty of wide open green space, lakes and ponds, but it's the amount of sporting opportunities available here that make Regent's Park stand out.
Enter the park and immediately there's the boating lake where, from April - September, rowing and pedal boats are up for hire. Across the way from the lake are the tennis courts where you can turn up and play or become a member (opening times for the adjacent cafe are 09:00 - 21:00). Right in the middle of the park is The Hub, a fully-kitted out gym with 360 views of the park, complete with changing facilities, showers and a cafe.
Another stand-out feature of the park is its zoo. London Zoo, to be precise. It's world-famous for being the first scientific zoo anywhere on earth, and houses more than 600 species of animal.
In the lower right-hand corner of the park, you'll find a selection of formal gardens including the Queen Mary Gardens which are comprised of a selection beds stuffed to the gunnels with roses and tulips. The entire corner of Regent's Park is licked with the scent of a thousand flowers.
