40: Regent Street Regency architecture

Regent StreetOnto Regent Street and you will notice how the architecture changes to something a bit more European in appearance. The elegant uniformity is a result of the street's complete rebuilding in a short period at the start of the 20th century, a process made possible by having just a single landlord, the Crown Estate. Today Regent Street has listed status and the shops are required to conform to a certain style to 'fit in'. Discreet signage sometimes means that the shops are difficult to distinguish.
