The Garden

Regent’s University London boasts an 11-acre private garden in Regent’s Park, originally home to the pioneering Bedford College for Women. The informal woodland-style grounds feature expanses of lawn, surrounding ivy-covered buildings. There are many trees and shrubs including a mature plane, designated a ‘Great Tree of London’. There is also a secret garden tucked behind high hedges featuring roses, seating, a pond and tree ferns. The university campus occupies the site of South Villa – one of the original Regent’s Park villas from the early 1800s. Queen Mary opened new buildings in 1913 which had been designed by architect Basil Champneys.
