Address 4 Carlton Gardens London W5 2AN, UK

Designed by the architect John Nash between 1827 and 1832, this five-storey building consists of two blocks of buildings.

Built on the site of Carlton House, the former palace of the Prince Regent, John Nash’s plan was to build six terraces but in the end only two were built. In 1929, number 4 was razed and rebuilt in stone. During the Second World War, it was bombed because it housed the headquarters of Charles de Gaulle’s Free France. Today it houses only offices and headquarters for institutions such as the Royal Society, which promotes science. Carlton House Terrace is owned by the Crown of England. It is therefore managed by the Crown Estate.
