The topography and riverside location of the Savoy Conservation Area are of particular significance, having shaped the street layout and development. Although the area has been in continuous development since the fourteenth century, most of what is there now was built between 1860 and 1939. The palate of traditional building materials, from Portland Stone to brick and glazed terracotta make for a varied townscape. The area is visually dominated by Shell-Mex House and the Savoy Hotel. These buildings, along with Brettenham House, are prominent in riverside views.
The Savoy Conservation Area was designated in 1981.
