London is home to two of the oldest working theatres in the world both founded by Charles II’s patents. They shaped a whole quarter of London, and continue to do so today.

In a second lecture on ‘Buildings in the West End of London’, Professor Thurley looks at the significance and impact of these great institutions on the development of London.
