Sloane Square

Category: Parks and Open spaces

Sloane Square is a small hard-landscaped square on the boundaries of the fashionable London districts of Belgravia and Chelsea. It is located 1.7 miles (2.8 km) south west of Charing Cross.

The square lies at the east end of the trendy King’s Road and at the south end of the more conventionally smart Sloane Street. In the early 1980s, it lent its name to the “Sloane Rangers”, the young underemployed and ostentatiously well-off members of the upper classes. The Square has two notable buildings: Peter Jones department store and the Royal Court Theatre. The River Westbourne is carried over the tube station in a large iron pipe.
