Park Crescent, London W1
Park Crescent, London W1
The Crescent consists of elegant stuccoed terraced houses by the architect John Nash, which form a semicircle. It is part of Nash's town-planning scheme linking central London to Regent's Park.

Work started in 1806, but the builder Charles Mayor went bankrupt after 6 houses had been built and was only completed 1819-21. Behind the protected facades, the houses have been modernised and many are now converted into expensive flats

It is now the home of International Students House, London and the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators. LinkExternal link
