The eighteenth and early nineteenth century saw the dramatic expansion of London – wide and elegant boulevards, formal landscaped squares, crescents, blocks of tall redbrick terraced houses, and stone-built Classical public buildings all appeared in Britain for the first time.


Throughout London’s sophisticated West End, in Bloomsbury, at Covent Garden, the British Museum and the National Gallery, the legacy of Georgian London is still strikingly apparent.


This beautifully illustrated book explores the emergence of Georgian London: its beginning, its growth, and its Renaissance planning and architectural concepts. The individuals responsible for this unique urban intervention are introduced together with the forces that inspired and motivated them. The significance of the legacy is also examined. In addition, two suggested walking tours are offered.
