Regent Street was one of the first planned developments of the capital, initially outlined as early as 1666 following the Great Fire of London.

Its implementation took place during the Regency era, with the street’s layout completed in 1825, after George IV’s ascent to the throne.

Today, Regent Street hosts some of the biggest brand stores in the world. Better still, it’s also home to several Afternoon Tea Regent Street Tearooms, all of which are, undoubtedly, well worth visiting.
