One of London's most complete and idyllic London squares, Fitzroy is a Grade I listed masterpiece of eighteenth century architecture, yet is just minutes from the creative energy of Soho and the bustle of Tottenham Court Road.

Developed in the late 18th century by famed architect Robert Adam, Fitzroy Square was always intended to provide London residences for aristocratic families. Over the years it has become associated with high- end Bohemian residents many of which had and have prominent careers in the arts. The likes of George Bernard Shaw, Virginia Woolf and Robert Louis Stevenson all resided here at some point and the tradition continues with the likes of Ian Mcewan who makes Fitzroy Square the prime setting of his 2005 novel: Saturday.

No 6, was of course built as a residence of the highest calibre reflected in hits lavish proportions, Portland stone frontage and exquisite interior and exterior plasterwork. Perhaps against the trend, No 6 was actually a bank for most of the 20th C. Its most notable client was the infamous Robert Maxwell who threatened to change banks if they ever decided to sell the house.

It was, as it happens, only after the death of the media proprietor that The Georgian Group managed to acquire the grade 1 listed building and use it as its headquarters in the mid 1990s. Since then, our continuing charitable work to save Georgian buildings has taken place from this building.
