Review of "Regent's Park, London"
If you are ever at a lose for a cheap day out in London then Regent Park could be it. It's set just behind soho/noho heading North (between Central London and Camden/Chalk Farm), but at times you can feel like you're out in the country here.The main entrance to the Park is near Great Portland Street station on the Euston Road so it's very easy to get to, but the actual park itself is divided into 2 parts. The area nearest Central London is always the busiest on hot days, when Londoners strip off to catch a few rays of sunshine, but the get the best of the Park (in my opinion) you need to walk through this bit and get across the road into the second part.
This part is far more utilitarian with Rugby/Football pitches and long pathways and promenades (and drinking fountain in the middle). This is where you get a real sense of what Londoners do in the their down time. If you walk through in the early morning you're likely to see people jogging, walking dogs, practising tai chi or simply taking in some welcome fresh air. After work you'll find people play touch rugby, football (jumper for goal posts!) and yet more joggers!If you keep going down toward Regents canal you'll get to London Zoo. This is where great free days out start. Many of the animals can be seen from the Park so there's no need to pay to go in. There's even a path that is slightly raised that loops around the back of the Zoo to Regent Canal and young children will be amazed that they've seen mysterious beasts without you having to foot a crazy bill for going in.
The Canal itself also offers a great view of the Zoo as it dissects the grounds. You can see bizarre goats and birds on the Canal walk and then head up to Camden Lock.All in all Regent Park is an absolute Gem in the heart of London and a great place to spend a cheap day!
