Queen Mary's Rose Garden (28 June 2008)

After a great time at Madame Tussauds we were not sure what to do next.  It was still too early to return to the hotel for the evening but we did have anything planned.  I took out my “Eyewitness Top 10 London Guide” and searched for something close.  That is how we decided to visit Regent Park.

The park was beautiful and green with lots of people enjoying the sunshine.  The Queen Mary's Rose Garden inside Regent Park was listed as one of the top 10 gardens to visit and we made our way there.

And what a great surprise when we arrived.  There were roses in every colour we could think of.  They smelled delicious and looked beautiful.  We walked around for a while but then decided to find a spot to sit and just enjoy.

It was about 19:20 in the evening and the garden was quite busy.  We sat for a while and then walked around some more.  We saw swans on the pond and some other beautiful flowers and plants but kept returning to the roses.

We walked back through another part of Regent Park to find a tube station to go back to the hotel.  We had a great day in London and fell in love with the city with its long history and pretty parks.

  1. Now there is a rose garden that no rose fan should miss. I didn't get to see it on my brief London visit a couple of years ago. Does it count that the Queen Mary 2 was in the PE harbour last week.
