This famius London street is one of the major shopping streets in the West End of London. It is well known to tourists and locals alike and famous for its Christmas illuminations. It is named after the Prince Regent (later George IV) and is commonly associated with the British architect John Nash, whose street layout survives. All of his original buildings have since been replaced except All Souls Church (adjacent to the BBC offices).
The street was completed in 1825 and was an early example of town planning in England, cutting through the 17th and 18th century street pattern through which it passes. It runs from the Regent’s residence at Carlton House in St James’s at the southern end, through Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Circus, to All Souls Church. From there Langham Place and Portland Place continue the route to Regent’s Park.
Although none of the original 1825 Nash buildings (save for the church) remain (the Regency buildings were all demolished between 1897 and 1925) every building on the street is protected as a listed building with at least Grade II status, and together they form the conservation area.
