Regency Splendours of St Helier – Heritage Open Day
9 September 2017, 10:00 am–12:00 pmFree
As part of Heritage Open Day, local Blue Badge Guide, Arthur Lamy will be guiding a walk around St Helier and discovering its Regency ‘splendours’. The walk will take in the many Regency crescents of the town and Arthur will outline what life would have been like at that time. The Regency in Great Britain was a period when King George III was deemed unfit to rule and his son ruled as his proxy as Prince Regent. On the death of George III in 1820, the Prince Regent became George IV. 1811 – 1820. The Regency period is noted for its elegance and achievements in the fine arts and architecture. This era encompassed a time of great social, political, and economic change. War was waged with Napoleon and on other fronts, affecting commerce both at home and internationally as well as politics. Despite the bloodshed and warfare the Regency was also a period of great refinement and cultural achievement, shaping and altering the societal structure of Britain as a whole.
The walk is free and will start from the The statue of King George V which is situated in the park near the main gates off Colomberie.
