  Photograph of part of the Boating Lake, Regents Park, London, England   Regents Park.

The Boating Lake in Regents Park is quite large and this view is from the footbridge which crosses the eastern arm of the lake which is one of the narrowest parts of the lake. The footpath across the bridge leads onto Queen Mary's Gardens.

  Photograph of the pond and cascade in Queen Mary's Gardens, Regents Park, London, England   Regents Park.

Queen Mary's Gardens is surrounded by a road called the Inner Circle which is one of the few roads within the park. This is the pond, rockery and cascade within Queen Mary's Gardens.

There are also the Rose Gardens which contain 30,000 roses of 400 varieties but aren't in bloom until around mid-june.

  Photograph of wood sculptures, Regents Park,  London, England   Regents Park.

We spotted a number of wood sculptures in various places in the park of which this is but one. I don't know what it's supposed to represent, who carved it or why these sculptures are there.

This features a child with what appear to be six little seats.

  Photograph of the view from Primrose Hill, London, England   Regents Park.

The northern boundary of Regents Park is defined by Prince Albert Road and immediately on the other side of the road is Primrose Hill. An open space very much like Regents Park, and which also comes under the auspices of the Royal Parks, but which reaches the dizzying heights of 256 feet.

Although a rather diminutive hill it does, however, give a good view across London with the London Eye, the BT Tower, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Shard and Canary Wharf all visible on the skyline. It's worth the climb on a sunny day.
