About this event

The Regent’s Park is one of London’s finest public spaces. Created by John Nash in the early 19th Century it is credited as the city’s first garden suburb. In its creation, Nash obsessively reworked plans to conjure a landscape, where stately villas, palatial terraces, rolling hills and curious monuments all play a role in conjuring scenes of delight. Yet behind the stucco, it was a venture into the Regency housing market marked by bitter arguements, nepotism, fudge and compromise. From illusions of Versailles, to incarnations of ancient Greece and modernism, this walk explores the artfully spun fictions and show stoppers of the park through the story of its making, its best buildings, finest views and greatest dramas!
