Regent’s Park History
Together with Hyde Park, Regent’s Park was the hunting ground
of King Henry III. The wild bulls, boar and deer that roamed the
land were inviting prey, and although hard to imagine, it was
the scene of many Royal extravagances.
Also hard to imagine is a different name. Previously known as
Marylebone Park, it wasn’t until the 17th century that it took up
the name Regent’s Park, due to the interest shown by the future
King. The park’s arrangement and landscaping can be credited
to architect John Nash, who was commissioned by Prince
Regent to create a master plan for the area. Nash designed a
vast, round park of over 160 hectares, surrounded by palatial
terraces, a lake, a canal and an original plan for 58 villas,
although only eight were ever built.
Regent’s Park became the home to the now-dissolved Royal
Botanic Society but it remains the headquarters of the
Zoological Society. Now the park is best known as the location
for London Zoo.
Regent’s Park Life
Regent’s Park is located in the NW1 postcode and borders
Primrose Hill, Camden Town, Marylebone and Fitzrovia. The
park itself offers a number of lifestyle attractions. The open
air theatre is the only professional outdoor venue of its
kind, while the annual Freezer Art Fair takes places in the
autumn in the south of the park.
While central London’s sprawl is accessible by foot, Regent’
s Park is well served by public transport. The nearest
Underground stations are Regent’s Park itself, Baker Street
and Great Portland Street, while overground services run
from Camden Road and Marylebone.
Residents of Regent’s Park can often be found in neighbouring Primrose Hill, where there is more of a
village vibe and a café culture. The streets of Regent’s Park itself are lined with five-star hotels - perfect
places in which to take afternoon tea - as well as bistros and boutiques. Residents take great pleasure in
walking through the quaint streets of NW1, with the stucco-fronted terraces providing a stunning

Regent’s Park Property Profile
Unlike many of the other Royal Parks, Regent's Park does
have a few rare opportunities to live within the grounds
itself. There is a collection of private residences around
the Inner and Outer Circle of Regent's Park and they are
sought-after by extremely distinguished buyers. The
Royal Parks are developing a number of lodge properties
within the park from 2014 onwards, and each dwelling
will be refurbished to a high standard.
Buyers looking for houses for sale in Regent's Park are
often swayed by the grandeur of the terraces. Almost
exclusively designed by architect John Nash, with a few
examples of Decimus Burton’s work, the rows of white
stucco-fronted dwellings capture the refined elegance of
early 1820s. The great terraces include Gloucester Gate,
Cumberland Terrace, Chester Terrace, Cambridge
Terrace, York Terrace, Cornwall Terrace, Clarence
Terrace, Sussex Place, Hanover Terrace and Kent
Terrace. To the south of the park are Park Square and
Park Crescent - also fine examples of John Nash's design.
What our Estate Agents love about Regent’s Park
Royalty in real life - Almost everything about Regent’s
Park has a royal connection, from the area’s name itself
to the people that live there. The imposing dwellings have
an impressive list of current owners, including sultans
Skilfully renovated properties - with so many of the
buildings bearing Grade I or II listed status, the character
and details have been well preserved. This doesn’t mean,
however, that the properties are not fit for modern life,
with lavish additions such as cinema rooms, temperaturecontrolled wine cellars and home offices commonplace.
Great for the green fingered - Regent’s Park is a
magnet for anyone interest in horticulture. Queen Mary’s
Garden is home to the largest collection of roses in
London, while the Regent's Park Allotment Garden is
open to the public.
