The Great Estates of London 2018

The first year students on the BSc Real Estate Management went on a field trip to learn more about the Great Estates of London on Friday 16 March 2018. First stop was the recently renovated Regent Street Cinema for a series of talks on the Great Estates of London.

Settling into the Regent Street Cinema

This field trip is part of the Integrative Project which provides a background to the subjects that are taken in the first year. The module addresses the discipline-based and transferable skills that students will need during their time at university and beyond. These skills are explored and developed through a series of activities which involve viewing real estate from a range of perspectives. After the field trip, the students work in teams to prepare a group presentation about the Great Estates of London (the one visited by the team on the field trip) and how they are managed to positively enhance their value.

Back to the field trip itself (click on the red links for more information)....the students listened to a series of presentations and videos at the Regent Street Cinema before splitting into 6 groups for a walking tour of one of the following Great Estates:

The Grosvenor Estate
The Howard de Walden Estate
The Crown Estate
The Portman Estate
The Pollen Estate

And now for the photos (by Rachel Dixon and Youngha Cho)...

Paul Jenkins (Associate Lecturer and Asset Manager at Boultbee Brooks) and Nick Bailey (Project Manager at Argent) gave presentations on the Great Estates of London and the students watched this video by New London Architecture.

The Cramer Street Car Park - home to Marylebone Farmers' Market

Walking back towards Marylebone High Street

The redevelopment of Marylebone High Street features two 'anchor' stores - one of which is Waitrose...

...and a host of independent retailers, creating a unique and interesting retail experience.

Finishing up with a visit to a very traditional (and small) London pub: the Golden Eagle

The Shaftesbury group - the estate includes some of the most iconic destinations in London:
Soho, Chinatown, Carnaby, Fitzrovia and Covent Garden

Liberty of London

Carnaby Street
