Regent Street

Regent Street is one of the most famous shopping streets in the city of London. It is located very close to Oxford Street in Westminster borough.

The street ends in Piccadilly Circus and was designed by architect John Nash in an urbanisation plan. The plan had the idea to reshape all the West End. According to Nash, the new street supposed to be the separation between the degraded Soho and the exclusive Mayfair. It was named after the Prince Regent George IV.

In the opposite direction from Piccadilly Circus, just on the other end of Regent Street there is the Evangelical Church All Souls Church, the only building designed by John Nash in Regent Street that has survived in the Street.

The commercial street is famous due the high density of shops and the opening of the Christmas lights by a celebrity. Also, every year it is celebrated a music festival, the Regent Street Festival.
