10 WEEK COURSE: London during the Georgian and Regency periods was a city of stark and intriguing contrasts. It was enlarged and remodelled to incorporate many of the elegant squares, fashionable streets and arcades that still define the city today, such as Covent Garden, Bloomsbury and Regent Street.
But Georgian and Regency London were also grimy, overcrowded and overrun with crime and vice. Explore the highs and lows of London society, architecture, culture and transport in the time of Hogarth, Reynolds, Garrick and Nash.
