A Little Bit About Pimlico
In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the Manor of Ebury was divided up and leased by the Crown to servants or favourites.
Proximity to the Houses of Parliament made Pimlico a centre of political activity. Prior to 1928, the Labour Party and Trades Union Congress shared offices on Eccleston Square, and it was here in 1926 that the general strike was organised.
In the mid-1930s Pimlico saw a second wave of development with the construction of Dolphin Square, a self-contained “city” of 1250 up-market flats built on the site formerly occupied by Cubitt’s building works. Completed in 1937, it quickly became popular with MPs and public servants.
Pimlico survived the war with its essential character intact, although parts sustained significant bomb damage. Through the 1950s these areas were the focus of large-scale redevelopment as the Churchill Gardens and Lillington and Longmoore Gardens estates, and many of the larger Victorian houses were converted to hotels and other uses.
Situated in post code SW1 and in the London Borough of Westminster Pimlico has something to offer for everyone. It could hardly be more central, with Westminster Abbey for a parish church and Tate Britain for the local museum. Local supermarkets and fresh produce markets make the area practical and give the area a sense of identity apart from the West End.
Pimlico primaries education includes Westminster Cathedral RC, Burdett-Coutts & Townshend CofE, St Vincent de Paul RC and St Matthew’s are all “good” Ofsted schools, with Millbank “outstanding”. Pimlico secondary education includes Pimlico Academy and The Grey Coat Hospital are both “outstanding”.
