Regent’s Park (officially The Regent’s Park) is one of the Royal Parks ofLondon. It lies within north-west London, partly in the City of Westminster and partly in the London Borough of Camden.1 It contains Regent’s University London and the London Zoo.
The park has an outer ring road called the Outer Circle (4.45 km) and an inner ring road called the Inner Circle (1 km), which surrounds the most carefully tended section of the park, Queen Mary’s Gardens. Apart from two link roads between these two, the park is reserved for pedestrians. The south, east and most of the west side of the park are lined with elegant whitestucco terraces of houses designed by John Nash. Running through the northern end of the park is Regent’s Canal, which connects the Grand Union Canal to the formerLondon docks.
