Located in the heart of Central London, Regent Street runs between Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus. The elegant Regency facades were constructed for the Prince Regent, later to become George IV, by the Georgian architect John Nash from 1820 to 1825 as part of a boulevard intended to connect Carlton House at St. James's Park with a new property at Regent's Park.
The street was completely rebuilt from 1904 with the majority of the work done after the First World War and completed in 1927. The last surviving original Nash building is All Souls Church.
Today this famous thoroughfare offers a unique shopping experience, bringing together high street stores with famous names such as Hamleys, London's largest toy store, and classic British stores such as Liberty, Wedgewood, Aquascutum and Burberry.
