Named after the nearby Gloucester Gate to Regent's Park (named after the Prince Regent's sister, Princess Mary, Duchess of Gloucester). Unmistakably the very best residential street that Camden Town has to offer. Gloucester Crescent is truly elegant with large Victorian villas of generous proportions behind large wooded front gardens. The architecture is detailed and imaginative. Many of these listed villas, designed by Henry Bassett, have distinctive Italian features, such as roof pediments and towers with loggias.
As the crescent curves from Oval Road beyond Inverness Street, the outer curve is flanked by tall terraced houses, more simple in design yet highly decorated with stucco and detailed cornicing. The houses in the centre of the crescent, once again, differ in design and have the largest gardens. As the crescent curves back to meet Oval Road again, there is an octagonal Victorian piano factory which is now used as offices. Alan Bennett, who still lives in this street, wrote The Lady in the Van, which captures the events of one of Gloucester Crescent's more eccentric residents. Other famous neighbours include Jonathan Miller.
