Regent's Park is a London Underground station by Regent's Park. It is on the Bakerloo line, between Baker Street and Oxford Circus. It is located on Marylebone Road between the two arms of Park Crescent in Travelcard Zone 1.


The station was opened on 10 March 1906[2] by the Baker Street & Waterloo Railway (BS&WR); in the original parliamentary authority for the construction of the BS&WR no station was allowed at Regent's Park. Permission was granted to add it to the already partially constructed line in 1904.[3]

Station design[edit]

Unlike most of the BS&WR's other stations, Regent's Park has no surface buildings and is accessed from a subway. The station is served by lifts, and between 10 July 2006 and 14 June 2007 it was closed to allow essential refurbishment work on these and other parts of the station. There is also a staircase which can be used which has 96 steps.

Nearby points of interest are Regent's Park itself, the Royal Academy of Music, the Royal College of Physicians, Holy Trinity Church, Portland Place and Harley Street.

Great Portland Street station is within walking distance to the east for interchanges to the Circle and Metropolitan lines.


The typical service pattern in trains per hour (tph) is:[4]

  • 6tph to Harrow & Wealdstone via Queen's Park and Stonebridge Park (Northbound)
  • 3tph to Stonebridge Park via Queen's Park (Northbound)
  • 5tph to Queen's Park (Northbound)
  • 14tph to Elephant & Castle (Southbound)


The station is served by London Buses routes 18, 27, 30, 88, 205, 453 and C2, and also by night route N18.
