History

Soho Square dates back to the 1680s in an area of land known previously as Soho fields.

The half-timbered black and white building in the centre, which was built in 1895 was refurbished in 2009.

The site contains a statue of Charles II. It is recorded that in the 1790s the Garden was planted with Almond, Peach, Cherry, Lilac, Roses, Laburnum, and Honeysuckle. Today the gardens provide a green oasis in the densely built-up West End.
