Regent’s Park - not the park itself but the tube station.
Regent’s Park tube station is a London Underground station near to Regent’s Park, located on Marylebone Road between the two arms of Park Crescent.
The station was opened on 10 March 1906 by the Baker Street & Waterloo Railway (BS&WR); In the original parliamentary authority for the construction of the BS&WR no station was allowed at Regent’s Park. Permission was granted to add it to the already partially constructed line in 1904.
Because of this same rule and unlike most of the BS&WR’s other stations, Regent’s Park has no surface buildings and is accessed from a subway.
The station is served by lifts - there is also a staircase which can be used and which has 96 steps.
Great Portland Street station is within easy walking distance for interchanges to the Circle and Metropolitan lines.
