I love this time of year when the leaves are turning and the days turn crisp – a walk in the park is even better when it’s still sunny out!
Frieze Art Fair is currently in Regents Park and as part of it there is a free sculpture park open until January. So it make sense to take a walk in the park, my favourite Sunday afternoon pastime before a Sunday Roast! And with my camera with me I was able to capture the sculptures and the changing season all at once.
Frieze Sculpture Park
Frieze art fair is on every autumn in October and includes both the Frieze art fair, Frieze Masters (the posher bit?!) and the sculptures in the main area of the park – the English Gardens to be precise.
There was a mix from pop art to ultra modern to sculptures that imitated nature, such as the one below, echoing the shapes of the trees:
It looks like a lightening bolt to me! I was there as the sculptures were still being set up, hence the traffic cones keeping people away.
I did like this white sculpture = a collection of different rocks:
How very French – a cabbage on chicken feet!
This was only a small selection of the works that are in situ, so why not take a walk this weekend and check the rest of them out?! More details are on the Frieze website.
After our stroll around the sculptures we walked into the Inner Circle of Regents Park enjoying the sunshine and taking the opportunity for more photos, including of my giveaway, the JORD wood watch.
Inside these gates you can find some formal gardens, ponds and the Regents Park theatre (open in the summer months only as it’s all outside)
The formal gardens are beautiful – a lot of care and attention goes into the planting here.
This fountain and permanent sculpture is pretty special and popular with the tourists taking photos.
The best bit – or at least the most fragrant – is the rose garden. Even in October we could see plenty of roses blooming:
Find the Inner Circle at the middle of Regents Park and check out the Royal Park’s Website for more details.
JORD Wood Watch + giveaway competition
My watch is the Women’s Cora maple and silver, with that fabulous detail on the face, with the cut away window to peek at the inner workings and more detail on the back:
You can see the cogs working! I love how unique and different these watches are, and being all wood, from the main part of the watch to the strap, they are very natural looking.
Mine isn’t made from pine but looks perfectly at home in the pine tree. JORD use all types of wood, from the very blonde like this Cora maple one, through to much darker. They also do men’s watches and some of the shapes are traditional and some more modern. Basically something to suit all tastes and fashions.
Even better is how they arrive – on a cushion in its own wooden box – very regal if you ask me…

The sculpture in the park looks great – especially the cabbage with chickens legs!! I entered the giveaway and have everything crossed. Great watches.
