A Little Bit About Sloane Square
Before 1777 there was no Sloane Street or Sloane Square. To get from Knightsbridge to the Kings Road, a distance of about ¾ of a mile, one would have to trudge across a patchwork of dangerous fields. The route would take them close to the infamous Five Fields which was a marshy no-mans-land and home to brigands and highwaymen. At that time, on the eastern side of what is now Sloane Square was “Blandel” or “Bloody” Bridge, so called because of the numerous robberies and murders committed on the spot.
Sloane Street was developed by Henry Holland for the 1st Earl Cadogan. Charles ‘Sloane’ 1st Earl Cadogan sold a development lease to Henry Holland in 1777. Holland developed nearly 100 acres of Chelsea laying out the street plans for Sloane Street, Sloane Square and Hans Place. The layout is still very similar of what we see around us today.
Harvey Nichols can trace its history back to Benjamin Harvey’s shop of 1831 on the corner of Knightsbridge and Sloane Street – in exactly the same place Harvey Nichols is today. Much expanded since then, the frontage seen today was constructed in the 1880’s.
Located on the boundaries of the fashionable London districts of Knightsbridge, Belgravia and Chelsea, Sloane Square it offers beautiful surroundings including Chelsea Physic Garden. Dating back to the 17th century, it was established by the Society of Apothecaries allowing apprentices to study the medicinal properties of plants. It became internationally renowned and is the oldest botanical garden in London.
Situated in post code SW1, the square lies at the east end of the trendy Kings Road and at the south end of the more conventionally smart Sloane Street linking to Knightsbridge.
The Square has two notable buildings Peter Jones department store and the Royal Court Theatre with Sachi and Sachi just around the corner.
Schools include the infamous Francis Holland School, Garden House School, Saint Thomas More Language College, Lycee Francais Charles de Gaulle, Mander Portman Woodward School and Queen’s Gate School.
