St George’s Square was originally laid out in 1839 and is known as being the only London Square that fronts the Thames. The river fronting element of the garden, known as Pimlico Gardens is the location of a grand statue of William Huskisson, an MP who was also the first person in the UK to be run over and killed by a railway engine.
St George’s Square has been the home of many notable residents, including Bram Stoker, the author of Dracula who lived in No. 26 until 1912.
At the north-western end of St Georges Square is St Saviours Church. In the grounds of the church is a highly regarded kindergarten, Young England Kindergarten which feeds children into many of the top schools in London. This was where Princess Diana was employed before her engagement to Prince Charles in 1981 and was the location of the now infamous revealing photo of Diana. It remains one of the most famous photos of Princess Diana.
The gardens of St George’s Square are now Grade II listed by Historic England as a good example of a mid-C19 garden square complete with paths, bed and mature plane trees, designed by Thomas Cubitt.
Located in Pimlico Gardens is Westminster Boating Base, an independent, young persons charity teaching dinghy sailing, powerboating, kayaking and canoeing in central London to young people and adults.
St George’s Square has an active residents association who work together with Westminster City Council to ensure the gardens are well run and that residents are kept informed. The residents association also host a number of events throughout the year in the gardens for residents.
Just 400m from the apartment is Pimlico Underground on the Victoria Line giving access to the City via Vauxhall/Waterloo and of course being just three stops from the world-renowned shopping at Oxford Street and our world renowned Theatreland.
