Tim's history of London walk 8 - Regency London Tim

This is the eighth walk in our series looking at London’s history.
We’re now in the 1790s and London is poised on the brink of explosive growth. Wealth is flooding in from the growing empire and the rich are getting very rich indeed. There is a new mini-renaissance in the arts especially in architecture.
Between 1795 and 1837, London is transformed: Regent Street, Regent's Park and the Regent's Canal change the north west corner of central London for ever. The rich had never lived so well or so elegantly. But there is another side to London as well. One of developing industry, a revolution in transport and grinding poverty. On this walk we see London's two faces.
Starting from Baker Street, we'll see the great houses that the rich built as we walk by Regents Park. We then follow the course of the Regents Canal into Kings Cross looking at how London industrialises in the first half of the nineteenth century.
We meet at 10.30in the Metropolitan Bar next to Baker Street station for a coffee and start walking at 11.
We'll end about 1.30 in a welcoming pub.
