Event description

Description

Regent Street is the great showpiece thoroughfare of London. Cutting a swathe through the West End, it is one of the city’s most important urban developments and transformed the face of London. Carved out by the city’s great architect-planner John Nash, it was touted by George IV as the premier street of Europe. Lined with an array of stucco parades and colonnades, it was completely rebuilt in during the 1900s to match the scale and ambition of a new century – a project still underway in the 1920s. From pleasure palaces and Regency rendezvous to facades and arcades, this walk charts the making and REmaking of the street from its 19th century origins to its 21st century role in the life of the contemporary city.

DEPARTS – Foot of The Duke of York Steps, on the Mall at St James’s Park.

A walk by The London Ambler - Mike Althorpe
