Penhaligon's Regent Street

Another Penhaligon’s completed…

Regent Street was designed in the early nineteenth century by the architect John Nash,  connecting the Prince Regent’s Carlton House with Regent’s Park to the north.   John Nash was perhaps the most famous architect of the 18th and early 19th centuries. He is recognised for his work on Buckingham Palace, Regent’s Park and, in particular, for the redesigning of the Royal Pavilion in Brighton.

Most of the buildings on Regent Street are Listed Grade II and as a whole designated as a Conservation Area by the City Council in 1973.


It is the Council’s duty to preserve and enhance the character of Regents Street.  All the buildings  (apart from Nos. 289-319 odd) are in the freehold ownership of the Crown Estate and any applications for shopfronts and advertisements need to be submitted to Westminster City Council for planning permission, listed building and advertisement consent.


Where a sign shows the name of the occupier, as we did for Penhaligon’s, the sign must be made of individual solid bronze letters with a BMA finish.  Bronze metal antique (BMA) finishing involves the application of chemical compounds applied to a bronze surface to achieve a dark bronze effect.  We retained the services of a polishing specialist who can achieve the high standard required in Regents Street.
