It’s bursting with open spaces, and gives you access to beautiful nature right outside your front door. Before making the big move, check out our handy Regent’s Park suppliers guide below to ensure you have the best possible experience.
Regent’s Park is filled with some of the capital’s most iconic homes. You’ll have a choice of everything from listed villas and stucco-fronted terraces, to the original Nash houses, designed by architect John Nash as part of his famous Regent’s Park development. Local estate agents specialising in marketing and selling these unique properties are the best way to find the right Regent’s Park home for you.
The Camden branch of Foxtons and the Regent’s Park branch of Messila Residential are two excellent places to start your search. These estate agents cover a very broad range of sales and lettings and will give you a good idea of what’s available locally. For a more targeted selection, Kubie Gold in Marylebone and Sandfords in Westminster specialise in properties within London’s more exclusive and in-demand areas. These include Regent’s Park and the surrounding areas of Marylebone and St. John’s Wood.
If you have a very specific type of property in mind, it can often be best to work with local independent estate agents who manage luxury, high-calibre properties in Regent’s Park exclusively. There are a number of options, including Aston Chase, Bargets, and David Birkett, all based on Park Road.
The historic nature of the homes in Regent’s Park means that there are a number of specialist services available locally. These will give you peace of mind that your new home has been thoroughly cleaned after the previous owners or tenants have vacated the property. Many of these services can also help you to maintain your new home effectively, using methods and techniques that will retain the property’s character.

For home cleaning, AMR Cleaning Services in neighbouring Fitzrovia is located just south of the park. AMR offers both on-off and regular services, as well as antiviral sanitation cleaning. This can give you peace of mind that your new home is clean and hygienic during the COVID-19 pandemic. Alternatively, consider Fastklean in Marylebone.

Liv Technology in Marylebone, and Smart Home Innovation located just south of the park on Great Portland Street, are two leading technology companies serving the Regent’s Park area.

Burglary accounts for less than 5% of annual reported crimes in Regent’s Park, making it one of the safest places to live in the city. However, it’s always good practice to change the locks on any new property that you move into, giving you peace of mind that your family are as secure as possible.
In Regent’s Park, you’re just minutes from London’s oldest security firm, Bramah, which moved to Fitzrovia from its original Piccadilly location.

Both provide routine lock changes, maintenance, and security upgrades for older style windows and doors. They also offer a 24/7 callout service for more time-sensitive situations.
