Michelle Mitchell took this photo in London at the Regent Street Summer Festival 5 days ago. As the restaurant marquee opens onto Regents Steet the door is being used to lure hungry mouths to their menu which has been strategically placed on the front door. The Regent Street Festival is held yearly and it is the only day that this busy street is traffic-free but changed into a musical and theatrical extravaganza.
Regent Street and the similarly named Regent's Park is one of London's prettiest areas. The neoclassical architecture of the park terraces was designed from plans laid in 1811 by John Nash, Crown Architect and friend of the Prince Regent. The park itself boasts over 400 acres of public space which includes playgrounds, landscaped gardens, an incredible Rose Garden with more than 150 species of roses and of course, the indomitable London Zoo.
