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?
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.
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
I just moved into the neighbor and would like to inquire about classes, I'm living at the White House Apartments on Albany Road and have never tried Tai Chi before but it looks interesting. Any information would be appreciated. thank you. My email address is

Hi I'm Anne, looking for a charming, Victorian-style flat/room to rent/share on Primrose Hill, Regent Park Road. I don't mind if it is small so long as it is charming. Anyone has a clue?
Any leads or tips?
I'd be glad to help you out in Paris in any way I can.
Thanks for dropping me a note here.
A new environmental group looking for new members! Our initial meeting is going to take place on 31st of March in Central London. If you are interested in learning more about environmental issues, recycling, composting, organic and fair trade products etc, why not come and join us! It is free and we are a friendly bunch of people. Please
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.
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.
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.
Moved down from the North East where I played at a decent level and was hoping to find a side down here to get back in the groove again, can anybody help me please.

I'm not sure what repellent works best, but the bites are very irritating.
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!
yes church street market nw8 a-z look in
I am interested in joining the beginners Tai Chi class. i have done some before but it has been a few years since I was away travelling and have had a baby in the past year.
Hi can you email me some more info regarding your 12 week Tai chi course. I was also wondering whether you practice in any of the london parks.
Not technically in Regents Prk, but very nearby, just the other side of Euston Rd, there's a good one in Fitzroy Square, W1. I joined only a few months ago, with no waiting list. Very non-scary.
Fitness First on Albany St is between £35- £50 depending on whether you're local. Holmes Place on Longford St is probably more expensive. Both near Gt Portland St tube
hi, have you found a football club yet? if you have, would it be possible to join in on saturdays?
I've just moved into St Johns Wood and am looking for some football action. Are you guys still having your Sunday lunchtime games? Where abouts in the park do you play?
hello i wanted to ask about the swimming pool if there is ladies pool or a time just for ladies as a lot of people asking and wendring if you do have it.
Come and play every Sunday at 12:00. Check out our website: www.fancyfootwork.50megs.com
My recommended bar is the "low life" (www.lowlifebar.com). Atmospheric, friendly, comfortable and stylish. Turn left into paddington street when walkling down baker street.
