It’s official…spring has sprung in London! Though the flowers are just starting to emerge there’s no place I’d rather be on a sunny day than out and about soaking in the Vitamin D.
There are eight Royal Parks in London and though Hyde Park and Kensington Garden are my usual go-to’s I decided to mix things up and head to The Regent’s Park. Known best as the home to ZSL London Zoo, Regent’s Park was designed by John Nash and covers 395 acres in North East London.
The centerpiece of the park is Queen Mary’s Garden, home to the Rose Garden which features more than 12,000 roses in 400 varieties. Though the roses aren’t blooming just yet there’s still plenty to see and marvel at.
And though the park can become a bit crowded in some spots there are still plenty of calm corners to grab a quiet moment for reflection and marvel at the beauty of nature…
It was lovely to see the daffodils and cherry blossoms out in bloom.
And, as always, we sought out some furry new friends…
If you’re looking for an alternative to the more central Royal Parks in London (which can become clogged with locals and tourists very quickly) head to Regent’s Park to soak in the fresh air, lounge in the sun and enjoy one of London’s often-overlooked gems!
