Directions

Leave the square by the far right (NW) corner. Cross King Street at the traffic lights. Note Young's Corner (now the Artisan coffee bar) opposite, the most eccentric building in the borough. Turn right along King Street and take the first left into Westcroft Square, opposite The Hart, a fine brick and terracotta building.

Description

Westcroft Square dates from 1878. Like St Peter's Square, this square was threatened by building development in 1927 . The owners of property in the square bought up the land and gave it to the Council as a park in 1929. The Metropolitan Public Gardens Association gave money in the 1990s to refurbish it.
