Lost London


Lost London is the story of the city as told through the buildings, parks and palaces that are no longer with us.

Places like the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, the leading venue for public entertainment in the city for over 200 years, or the Palace of Whitehall whose 1500 rooms made it the largest royal residence in Europe until it was destroyed by fire at the end of the 17th century.
