Regent's Canal

Hello

Thanks for popping in.

Walking along the Regent's Canal in London having been in Regent's Park and now heading back to Paddington, there are some rather imposing white houses off to the left.

These were built by Architect Quinlan Terry between 1988 and 2004 on the old site of Bedford College.  They were designed to be in the style of John Nash who was the creator of Regent's Park, but each one celebrates a different classical architectural style.







Don't they look good in the canal.

Not quite as grand, the canal with its wide towpath mooches on under some modern bridges.



Who knows what's round the corner!

Cheerio

  4. Very grand. I like the second one as it looks more private and secluded with the trees on the canal side.

    1. Considering the rich and famous live there, they are rather on display.
