Golden Square

Category: Parks and Open spaces

Golden Square, Soho, London in the City of Westminster is one of the great historic squares of Central London. The square is just east of Regent Street and north of Piccadilly Circus.

Probably laid down according to plans by Sir Christopher Wren, this west London square was brought into being from the 1670s onwards. It very rapidly became the political and ambassadorial district of the late 17th and early 18th centuries, housing the Portuguese embassy among others.
