With its magnificent architecture, proximity to one of London’s most iconic open green spaces as well as London Zoo; a sophisticated, international vibe, Regent’s Park is one of London’s most desirable locations.
Once part of the manor of Tyburn, the land was converted into a hunting ground by Henry VIII. In the early part of the 19th century the Prince Regent commissioned architect John Nash to create a master plan for the area and he developed his design for the grand villas and terraces - created “for the wealthy and the good” - which surround the park.
The area is bordered by Primrose Hill to the north, Marylebone Road (A501 & A40) to the south, Hampstead Road (A400) to the east and Lisson Grove to the west.
Regent’s Park is attractive to families, particularly those keen on sports, as the park has the largest outdoor sports facility in London. The Hub offers sports pitches, changing rooms and showers; exercise classes, children’s activities and a café.

John Nash’s breathtakingly beautiful stucco facades line the south, east and most of the west side of the park. Buildings in Park Square and Park Crescent - to the south of the park - were also designed by Nash. In the extended area you’ll find Victorian and Edwardian houses plus some late 20th century developments, offering wide choice if you’re buying or renting in the area.
