Regent’s Park
Originally hunting land and now one of London’s vital open spaces, Regent’s Park was completely redesigned by architect John Nash at the behest of the Prince Regent. Nash’s reach extends over the surrounding streets too, a fine example being the dignified Cumberland Terrace. There couldn’t be a greater contrast with the nearby Drummond Street, famous London-wide for its array of Indian restaurants. The surrounding area is one of the most racially mixed in Camden with some large estates. Further north is Mornington Crescent which gave its name to the Mornington Crescent game played by cab drivers and immortalised on radio.
