Lecture and Buffet Supper: John Nash and the Making of Regency London
6 Fitzroy Square London
Over a period of little more than 15 years, starting in 1813, the architect John Nash transformed the West End of London through the creation of Regent’s Park, Regent Street, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and much else. This illustrated talk will explain the history of this extraordinary and far-reaching programme of urban improvement, and will examine its legacy for the London of today.
