In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Regents Park like this:
Regents Park, eccl. dist., St Pancras par., Middlesex, in NW. of London, pop. 10,378; the park is a circular enclosure of 450 ac. It contains the Baptist College; the Zoological Gardens, with the finest collection of wild beasts and birds in the world; and the Botanical Gardens, with a large conservatory, and 18 ac. laid out with a choice collection of trees, shrubs, and flowers.
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Regents Park has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Westminster. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Regents Park and units named after it.
