St George’s Square in Pimlico, London SW1V
- by CityWest Residential
With its central location and picturesque streets, Pimlico is a popular area with both families and young professionals. This elegant corner of London is home to interesting stores such as bookbinders, market stalls, and Bakelite-era cafes, as well as dainty buildings and squares.
Located between Lupus Street and Belgrave Road, St George’s Square is a long, narrow garden square in the heart of Pimlico’s grand stucco buildings.
The square was originally designed as two parallel streets but was developed into a square by 1843 – making it London’s only residential square that was open to the River Thames and, as such, is highly desirable place to live. Until 1874, when the first residents moved into the square, it had its own pier for steamers and boats.
The square is named after St George, the patron saint of England and is widely thought to be the most beautiful garden square in London. In the summer months, the peaceful square is the perfect location for a picnic away from the hustle and bustle of city life, allowing families and friends to come together to enjoy the sunshine in a location that couldn’t feel further from the heart of the capital.
St George’s Square is served by Pimlico Tube Station, which is located just a three minute walk away. There are also plenty of things to see and do in the surrounding area – major sites and attractions such as Westminster Cathedral and Tate Britain are just minutes away.
