The Pavilion Café

Time Out has included it on their recent list of London's best park cafés and says "The café is still probably London's best place to enjoy a perfectly brewed coffee alfresco... the fry-ups are well known in the neighborhood and beyond, and the cakes splendid".

The Pavilion Cafe is open 8.30am-5pm Monday-Friday and 8.30am-6pm Saturday during the summer. In the winter it's open 8.30am-4pm daily.

The cafe is inside the park by Crown Gate West, by the boating lake.

Regency Boat Hire

Fancy taking a pedalo or a row boat out on the lake? Great for burning off some calories after stuffing yourself in the Cafe, or just as good for a relaxing afternoon with friends. To find out more visit www.regalboathire.co.uk or email info@regalboathire.co.uk .

  • The flower beds are exquisite and the park is clean and friendly. I particularly like the canoeing and paddle boats on the lake as it gives you a chance to get close to some of the wildlife that inhabits the park. The Chinese style marquee is also lovely. Considering the large amount of people who visit the park it is still relatively private and quiet.
  • First time visiting the park. Had loads of fun with the kids. There was a guy blowing massive bubbles for them to chase. My little one loved it. Will definitely go again as there is so much to explore. We also want to walk along the canal. We love exploring. Would definitely recommend everyone to visit here.
