Palace, Park and Square: St James's and the Birth of the West End
Mar 07, 2018
Based on new research into the origins of St. James's, Simon Thurley looks into the ingredients that went into making a court quarter there and the way it formed a blueprint for the new West End of London.
This is the first of two lectures by Professor Thurley on 'Buildings in the West End of London.'
The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: https://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/palace-park-and-square-st-jamess-and-the-birth-of-the-west-end
