A day at the Regents Park in London
A great way to add diversity to a visit to London is to visit one of the many parks around the city. One of the most famous and popular parks is Regents Park located in the North West of London. Regents Park is of royal status and has plenty to offer the visitor, with enough attractions to entertain for an entire day.Of the many different features that Regents Park has to offer, the open space is perhaps the most conventional and is certainly a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the busy city centre. The greenery within the park is stunning, whilst the large lake complements it perfectly. The gardens provide the opportunity to explore some of the best kept flower displays in the city, with spotless arrangements on display all year round. Another feature of the gardens is the specimen plants, some of which are unique to the park.Regents Park is a great day out for those of an active disposition as there are a variety of sporting and physical activities to enjoy. The sports pitches are a great place to stretch your legs and enjoy a kick about with kids or with some friends on one of the ten full size football pitches, whilst the cricket nets allow you to perfect your technique during the summer months. The tennis courts can be extremely popular as a result of the desirable location, so booking a tennis pitch in advance will avoid what can on occasions be a long wait. Regents Park is child friendly with plenty of open space and greenery to enjoy, but perhaps the most attractive feature to the young ones are the four different play grounds dispersed around the park. Each of the parks offers exciting yet safe apparatus and is monitored by an attendant. There is, of course, also the option to visit London Zoo which is located within the park, but that is a day trip in its own right. Aside from the zoo there is other wildlife to be enjoyed around the park, including the herons which inhabit the lake area. Checking the schedule at the open air theatre is an absolute must when visiting Regents Park. This is a surprisingly large venue offering performances of a variety of levels. You can enjoy musicals, plays and orchestras, and performances run at different times of the day.
