Description:
"Regent Street is situated in the heart of London's West End, in the City of Westminster. The street runs north to south, from Oxford Circus at the north end to Piccadilly Circus at the south end. Regent Street was completed in 1825, to a grand design by the architect John Nash. It was completely rebuilt by 1927, and the only surviving Nash building is the Church of All Soul's. All Souls Church in Langham Place is situated just off Upper Regent Street, opposite the Langham Hilton Hotel. A famous local landmark, the church dates from 1824, and is open to visitors."
