H: History of Regent's Park

It is quite often referred to as the greatest of the London parks, and like all the other Royal Parks is owned by the Crown. Back in the days prior to the reign of Henry VIII, the land was owned by the clergy. Henry appropriated the land during the time of the dissolution of the mo nasteries, and from then till now (with the exception of Oliver Cromwell's rule) the park has remained crown property. Originally known as Marylebone Park , it was John Nash who, in 1811, designed the park in the style we see it today. The brief given to Nash was to design and create a park in the style of a country estate.
