Cumberland Terrace

Cumberland Terrace
Cumberland Terrace, London

Cumberland Terrace is a neoclassical Duke of Cumberland.

The Terrace was built by William Mountford Nurse, with James Thomson serving as resident architect, and was completed in 1826. It consists of three main blocks, linked by decorative arches with typical neoclassical style and grandeur. The central block includes a large sculptural pediment above a long colonnade of Ionic columns.

Cumberland Terrace remains in residential use. Originally comprising 31 houses, parts have been converted into flats but many houses are still separate family homes. This first resident, William Mountford Nurse, moved into the terrace in 1828; the building was not fully occupied until 1836.

The Terrace was used as a location for the filming of The Invasion (Doctor Who) in 1968.
