London’s Royal Parks are some of the most beautiful areas in the city and offer a peaceful getaway if you’re not a fan of the busy streets. It’s surprising how much gorgeous greenery you can find in London, but if you explore the city, you’ll come across plenty of places to enjoy the fresh air and summer sun.
Regent’s Park is just down the road from the Montcalm at the Brewery and is one of our favourite parks in London, which is why we highly recommend you check out some of these fun things to do during your visit.
Sports lovers and fitness fanatics will have plenty to do this summer at Regent’s Park thanks to the on-site sports centre. The state of the art facility is located in the centre of the park and offers a wide range of different sports and activities for locals and tourists looking to get active. With a selection of pitches, courts, social areas and changing rooms, The Hub is ideal for groups of friends or families that want to team up and play their favourite sports this summer. After a long day of running around trying to score goals, head back to our London City suites hotel for a relaxing shower and a delicious dinner.
Memorials and statues
Like many areas in London, Regent’s Park is full of monuments that showcase the cultural history of the city. Stroll around the park and you’ll discover a number of gorgeous statues, such as The Boy and The Frog which was designed in 1936 by local artist Sir William Reid Dick. Photographers and history seekers will love exploring the grounds in search of historic sites like the Triton Fountain, which features three beautiful bronze statues at its centre. A walk through the park in search of the many beautiful monuments is a great way to spend an afternoon date.
Just next to the Regent’s Park grounds you’ll find the world’s oldest scientific zoo and the home of an amazing bunch of curious creatures. London Zoo is one of the city’s best tourist attractions and offers a wonderful day out for the whole family. Take a trip to Tiger Territory or watch the pesky penguins as they frolic around Penguin Beach. As well as getting to see animals from around the world you will also have the opportunity to learn about global ecosystems and the preservation of protected species. Be sure to take lots of pictures on your animal adventure and share them with us when you get back to the Montcalm at the Brewery.

From singers and dancers to poets and comedians, this venue offers amazing summer entertainment. It’s London’s oldest permanent outdoor theatre and attracts some of the best performers from the local area and around the world.
