Open Air Theatre in Regent’s Park
London is home to some
great green spaces as well
as a fantastic theatre scene.
Put them together and you have Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre – and a great night out.
Seating more than 1000 people, the theatre is one of London’s largest playhouses and began its life in 1932 with performances of Shakespeare.
The Bard’s work is still performed on its stage, but you can also catch musicals and plays by the likes of Arthur Miller and Oscar Wilde.
Although it’s all fairy lights and creepers rather than dark wood balustrades and heavy draping, you can still order your pre-theatre drink from the bar, or else picnic – either your own or order a gourmet hamper – on the grass.
Don’t forget to pack your brolly.
GREAT FOR: getting out
on cloudless nights
