A Trip to London's Regent's Park

A couple of weeks ago it was my birthday and as a little treat I took myself and my little boy up to London for a couple of days. I studied for my first degree at University College London and later spent several years working and living in the capital! London has so much to offer and as it's not too far from Brighton I try to visit as much as possible. We spent time in different areas of London, meeting with friends and visiting the Science Museum for the first time! I wasn't too sure if the Science Museum was suitable for a two-year old but there are a couple of toddler designated play/exploration rooms which are amazing, full of interactive areas ready to stimulate any little person! Actually, my little toddler didn't want to leave and we didn't even get to the second room! 

One of the highlights of the trip was a visit to Regent's Park. I know it well as I used to live nearby in Camden (many moons ago) and occasionally walked to work and university through the park! It's one of the best parks in London and has so many different areas worth exploring; wide tree-lined paths, a fantastic children's park, many beautiful active fountains, home to the Frieze Art Fair which was taking place the day we were there (the third photo shows one of the exhibits), a gorgeous lake with swans, ducks and many other unique birds, a separate boating lake, large playing fields, home to London Zoo and it's also full of some stunning flower displays! My description is probably not doing the park justice so if you happen to be in North/Central London and have some spare time I recommend taking a visit. It was a lovely sunny day when we were there and everyone was out enjoying the fresh air. As usual toddler wanted to push his own buggy around and I had my DLSR handy to take some snaps of the beautiful Autumn colours. Here's a selection from the trip:

  4. It is years since I visited Regent's Park, it looks even more stunning than I remember and the autumn colours are quite spectacular. I must admit when we visit family near Brighton we often try for a day in London, I might suggest the park next time. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids.

  5. Oh how lovely! Stunning images too. I've been spending my last few weekends exploring London's parks as well and it really is stunning! Hope you enjoyed your city break x

  6. Some great autumn scenes! The last photo with the leaves in the water is a fun one, not your usual autumnal photo but really pretty.

  9. Gorgeous pictures! I haven't been to Regent's Park for ages - it certainly looks good in autumn. I love all the London parks - we got to Bushy and Richmond park a lot. Thanks for linking to #citytripping
