Regent's Park Park Life Bingo

Regent’s Park stretches from Marylebone and Baker Street to the south, and Camden to the north. Not quite as big as Hyde Park, there are still plenty of activities to do with kids. So here’s KidRated’s top 10.

1. Head to a playground

Including this one in Primrose Hill, there are four playgrounds in Regent’s Park, all with different fun things to do.


2. Watch a show at the Open Air Theatre

In the summer months, the Open Air Theatre presents great plays and musicals. This year from 15th May until 14th June, ‘Peter Pan’ will be gracing the outdoor stage. Book in advance. And from 16th July to 29th August, you can catch the classic musical ‘Seven Brides for Seven Brothers’. Book here.



3. Learn to play tennis

4. Climb to the top of Primrose Hill

One of the best FREE views in London, look south to see the enchanting London skyline. On sunny days, it can be quite busy but there’s plenty of space. Great for celeb spotting too with Gwen Stefani, Jamie Oliver and Kate Moss all living locally.

5. Rent Pedalos

Regent's Park London

The park has a shallow boating lake where kids can captain their own boats, but if you want fun for all the family, hire a pedalo and explore the large boating lake. For prices and opening hours, check here.



6. Go on a bird walk

Nature-loving kids will enjoy spotting the huge variety of birds here. Check the website to see which birds can be fed, and which are perfectly happy to find their own food.

7. Explore the rose gardens

8. London Zoo

The world famous London Zoo is housed on the North East corner of Regent’s Park and is definitely worth a visit. But, if you haven’t got time, or are on a budget, from certain places in the park, you can get a great view of some of the animals for FREE. Cheeky, but thrifty.

9. Pick up a picnic

If you arrive in the park, and it’s so sunny that the thought of going inside to eat is unbearable, the Regent’s Bar and Kitchen offers picnic boxes. Simply choose from their tasty menu, choose a nice grassy patch and enjoy a leisurely al fresco lunch. Alternatively of course, bring a picnic from home!

10. Run Wild

Regent's Park

With over 400 acres of open space, Regent’s Park is perfect for kids to just play!
