Sun Sep 20


Every time I go to Regent's Park and come back, I have huge red spots/swellings that come up on my legs. It's so bad I can't go back in, seem to get this all the time in there, never in any other London park. What is going on????? The Royal Parks need to sort this out big time, massive health and safety problem. Too many people are reporting the same issue.

Same here !

went for a jog yesterday and came back home to massive lumps, sore swelling and few boils which were painful. Some are still leaking about 15 hours after starting leaking lol ima go to boots soon because I’ve been bitten by mosquitoes before abroad and it wasn’t too far of the same pain looool

Me too!

I've been getting this too from cycling around the inner circle in Regents Park - and I never get this anywhere else. I develop huge red lumps, with swelling, turning into weals and blisters over a few days. Did the insect repellent work for you? If so, which one?

insect bites

Exactly the same. And the reactions are quite bad - very large, red swellings. It happens every time I go, and never in any other park in London.

same here

I have the same problem every time I play at Regents park tennis centre. I think they're midges. But the bites seem much worse than anywhere else in the country - bleeding and apple-sized red swellings that last about three days

Holmes Place

you can expect to pay between £55-75/month at Regents Park Holmes Place, depending on which level of membership you choose, but the staff and services are quite nice. if you're seriously looking for a private gym in the £30-40/month category, I suggest you look in a different location cos you ain't gonna find it here.

Fri Jul 28


Primrose Hill on the north end is an area consisting of mostly families, prams and dog-wlkers. Students run amok nr London Business School on the west; musicians fill the air with music along the south; and more students and bankers along the southeast. And finally, directly east you'll find some former council flats and some lovely churches from the early 19th century.

Hope this helps.

Regents transport

The tube during rush hours is horrendous -- esp Baker Street tube stop. Picture mad swimming through people. If you get into the tube before 7 AM, it's near empty. Likewise, activity starts to cool after 9 AM.

Gt Portland Street is also busy, but not as bad as Baker Street. Eastbound trains seem worse than westbound trains, so if embarking at Gt Portland Street tube stop, it may be more difficult to find a seat as everybody's already grabbed it earlier.

Regents Park tube stop is closed until June 2007.

Not much going on in terms of tube stops to the north of Regents, only buses, unless you're willing to walk from/to Mornington Crescent, Camden Town or Swiss Cottage. But then you're no longer in Regents.

btw, I prefer the buses because they are less crowded.

Hope this helps.

They are probably horse flies

I'm not sure what repellent works best, but the bites are very irritating.

Biting flies in Regents Park


I play football in Regents Park frequently in the summer months, and have played the last few weeks.

I seem to be prone to insect bites there, and am constantly getting bitten by the things, often immediately leaving an open stream of blood when they finish.

But as time goes on, these bites turn into massive red lumps, and start to irritate.

I just wanted to know if anyone know what these flies are? So I can do a bit of research into them so I can get myself the right insect repellent.

Please email me if you know what they are as

Im not sure what regents park actually is to live in but it is a beautiful place. the park is awesome as my boyfriend and i hang around there. Its a quiet area to live in, attracts alot of tourists. Not sure whether there may be an issue for shops and takeaways as my boyfriend and i were walking around for ages trying to find some decent gaff. But the area is great on its own, quiet place, stress free, hassle free and whats more, you can destress in the park. Green acres all around for sport and general park. a lovers point in Queen Mary Garden, including a rose garden. Its a beautiful place!

Trains are packed in ther morning. Propa packed, ppl are sqaushed against the windows of the carriages but thats only coz its rush hour as it is peak time. things do cool off tho after half nine, coming ten am. Trains become a better ride once all the biz ppl get to work. Trains are faster, easier and quicker to use when not busy!
