Where

Built in 1828, Cumberland Terrace is the longest and most elaborate of John Nash’s terraces around Regent’s Park.

The magnificent central section, with raised Ionic columns, is surmounted by a decorated triangular pediment, rather reminiscent of Wedgewood pottery. This Classical-style building was designed to be visible from a grand palace Nash had planned for the Prince Regent, later George IV, in Regent’s Park.

The architect’s idea was to establish 56 villas in various Classical styles along with the pleasure palace for the Prince Regent.

However, the Prince Regent became too busy with his plans for Buckingham Palace and in the end only eight villas, and no palace, were constructed inside the park.
