The Space To Be
Regents Park

Regents Park… when the hustle and bustle of London streets gets a little too much you’re never far away from a lovely green open space… one of my favourite spots for a wander and a ponder being Regents Park. Named in honour of the Prince Regent (King George IV) who in 1811 commissioned the architect John Nash to design a proposal for the area. Some of the ideas including a palace for the King and several villas didn’t materialise but others were absorbed into schemes Nash designed for the King including the development of Regent Street and Carlton House Terrace. St John’s Lodge and The Holme are two of the original villas which remain today and the garden of St John’s Lodge is a lovely and more secluded part of the park to explore. Regents Park covers almost 400 acres between NW1 – W1 and includes Queen Mary’s Garden which opened to the public in 1932… The Triton Fountain by William McMillan became the centre-piece for these gardens in 1950
