A beautiful botanical garden steeped in hundreds of years of history. Although it is only four acres, we spent hours wandering along the paths and learning about plants.

Located in Regent’s Park, this is a wonderful garden to walk around and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the Garden.  It is in the center of the Park with some parking nearby.  The park has it own clean bathroom but it does cost 30 pence. The garden has many different variety of plants.  Garden is sort of shaped in a pie with each quarter with a different lay out and theme.  My favorite part is the area with the rose garden and little lake.  The park does not seem as busy as the rest of the park which makes this a nice place to stroll and relax.
