Fully taking advantage of this sporadic, spring-like weather we set out to Regent’s Park for the day.

Regent’s Park is one of London’s eight Royal Parks. Located in North West London, the park boasts 395 acres of beautifully manicured foliage and has over 100 species of wild bird and water fowl.

There is plenty to do at this park. Aside from enjoying the outrageously captivating scenery; there is paddle boating for kids and adults, a bird walk, a great place for a brisk run and even sports facilities that offer classes such as Pilates, Yoga and a Learning Disabilities Get Active class.

NuNu had such a wonderful time watching the ducks but when it came time to feed them crumbs of bread she couldn’t understand why she had to give up perfectly good food to some tiny flying creatures. She spent more time nibbling than feeding but was impressed to say the least. There is a children’s play area with slides, swings and full adventure playground that she couldn’t get enough of. She was too small for most of it but that didn’t stop her from trying!

There are several cafes and seasonal refreshment points to grab a bite to eat or a quick drink.  Regent’s Park is a fantastic place for the entire family and certainly offers a nice break from the concrete jungle.

Regent’s Park is also home to The London Zoo, Primrose Hill and The Open Air Theatre. The park is also close to nearby shops and attractions such as the Sherlock Holmes Museum and  the world famous Madame Tussauds.

My favourite British spots are any of the beautiful parks, especially on a sunny day such as this, after a long stretch of cold, cloudy and rainy days.” ~Richard Schiff, actor
