Part of the late-18thy-century terrace remains, overlooking the public park built as part of the large Aylesbury Estate by Southwark Council between 1967-77. Surrey Square Park is on slightly undulating ground. In the west is the Peter Martin Memorial Garden, a small area of landscaping with path and shrub beds.
Surrey Square was part of a scheme by architect by Michael Searles, built in 1793/4 for the Rolls Estate for which he was surveyor. Son of a Greenwich surveyor, Searles designed a number of ambitious schemes, largely uncompleted.
