The London Course The Evolution of a Great City / Regents Park (walk)

This course will take the key essentials and historic landmarks of the growth of London from one to two cities, and then into a world city of millions. The prime aim is to understand the direct legacy which we have inherited today, and literally know where and why the place in which you stand is all created by an evolution stretching back two thousand years, in which the life of London and Londoners has developed. (NB. when reference is made to the City with a capital letter, it is the City of London.)


This walk will explore the landscaping, terraces and villas of John Nash's concept of "rus in urbe" (the new town in the countryside). From the Regents Canal we will traverse the opulent terraces, the Inner and Outer Circles, and the glory of the lake in a setting of what was meant to be, but never came to pass, a royal and palatial new town.
