Open Air Theatre
The Regent’s Park open Air Theatre is literally situated in the heart of Regent’s Park. The theatre is open throughout the spring and summer and provides a scenic backdrop to outdoor productions. There is plenty going on in Regent’s Park, with coffee shops, food outlets, a boating lake and of course London Zoo! On sunny days it is always nice to have a picnic before seeing a show at the Open Air, or having a pre theatre dinner in the venue’s own restaurant. However there are also lots of restaurants near to the park that are less exposed to the elements!
As the theatre is located in the park, it can often take around 10 minutes to walk from the theatre to the nearest transportation link. Always check the Travel for London website (www.tfl.gov.uk) before you make your journey.
