It is London's good fortune to have several parks near its centre, green oases in the middle of the city. This book explores two of the best loved of these parks, Regent's Park and Primrose Hill. Regent's Park was created in the early nineteenth century as part of the most interesting exercise in town planning in British history. As well as the elegant teraces devised by architect John Nash, it includes grassland, woodland, wetland, gardens, a lake, a canal, the Open Air Theatre - and London Zoo. Primrose Hill, with its superb views over London, was added to Regent's Park, as a separate but linked park, in 1842. The two parks are home to a remarkable range of animal and bird life, and are used and loved by millions of Londoners and visitors to London. In this book Martin Sheppard traces the history of Regent's Park and Primrose Hill and describes their architecture and their life. Sandra Lousada's superb photographs reveal the parks in every aspect.
