Brief description of site

Cadogan Place is an early-19th century private square garden, covering about 3.5 hectares. The garden has been further developed in the later 19th and 20th centuries.

Brief history of site

Until 1777 the site of Cadogan Place was almost completely occupied by fields. After 1777, about 40 hectares of land to the west of the site was developed as Hans Town by the architect Henry Holland. At the end of the 18th century William Salisbury designed a garden in Sloane Street. This was named the London Botanic Garden.
