The Regent's Park

Why locals recommend it
This is central London’s finest park, which comes complete with its own zoo. You can run across parkland, mature gardens, tree-lined paths and, at Primrose Hill, tackle a steep climb with a great view from the top. Make time for a visit to London Zoo and you might even see a lion on your run! Early mornings, before 8 am, is the best time to hit Regent’s Park, as you’ll have it almost to yourself— apart from cyclists and the zoo keepers. For a longer run, after Primrose Hill keep going along the canal down to Little Venice and back.
Tips from locals
I'd recommend exploring the entire park in general. But heading to the south east corner is a must as Frieze's sculpture park is here!
If you're in need of some green space and fresh air, head towards Regent's Park and enjoy the stunning rose garden, wildlife and even the fantastic summertime Open Air Theatre.
Less popular but much more beautiful than Hyde Park, this park is a must do. Go walk, run, cycle or just lie there. Within the park, Vvisit Queen Mary’s gardens where you’ll find all kind of flowers, foutains and trees.
