Regent Street information
Regent St is the border separating the hoi polloi of Soho and the well heeled of Mayfair. It was designed by John Nash as a ceremonial route linking the Prince Regent’s long-demolished city dwelling with the ‘wilds’ of Regent’s Park, and was envisaged as a grand thoroughfare. Nash had to downscale his plan but it is today a well-subscribed shopping street.
The street’s most famous retail outlet is undoubtedly Hamleys, London’s premier toy and game store. Regent St is also famous for its Christmas light displays, which are turned on with great pomp earlier and earlier (or so it seems) each year. Last year it was mid-November.
