Regency London Zoom Talk – History of London Series

13 October @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

London in the period of 1780-1820 appeared as the epitome of gracious living. The Prince Regent’s favourite architect, John Nash, was busily redesigning a corner of central London to elevate its layout to a more monumental status with the inclusion of a great triumphal way. This area, incorporating a boulevard, residential crescents and long vistas, was designed to stretch from Regent’s Park down Regent Street to culminate in the newly converted (by Nash) Buckingham House.  London was awash with the money flooding in from the developing British Empire and its wealth could be seen in the opulence of the houses being constructed in the fashionable West End.  Join lecturer and author Tim Potter for an enlightening discussion of the eccentric characters and the historical forces that shaped the vision of London during its Regency coming-of-age.
