Talk 27th March: Charles Dickens and Regent Street

Regent Street + Charles Dickens TalkBy 1820, Regent Street was beginning to flourish, and it held it's position, leading in the sale of fashion and luxury goods, for the next eighty years. Charles Dickens would have known this area well, having lived nearby, both in earlier and later life and his character Lord Frederick Verisopht lived in 'a handsome suite of private apartments in Regent Street'  Nicholas Nickleby)


Regent Street and Charles Dickens Talk'QUADRANT (THE), REGENT STREET, was built when Regent-street was built, by John Nash, the architect of Buckingham Palace. The arcade, which covered the whole foot way, (supported by 145 cast-iron pillars), was removed in December 1848. Thus was sacrificed the most beautiful and most original feature in the street architecture of London. The reasons assigned for this removal were, that, though picturesque in itself and of use on a rainy day, it darkened the thoroughfare, lessened the value of the shops, and occasional other nuisances'.
Peter Cunningham, Hand-Book of London, 1850
