All about Pimlico

Pimlico is what you would call a small extension of central London, based in the city of Westminster. The area of Pimlico is secured by the river Thames to the south, and detached from Belgravia up to the north by the railway station known as Victoria. It is well known for its impressive and remarkable architecture as well as its primitive and monumental garden squares. In 1825 Thomas Cubitt began to adapt a grid of residential streets known as the heart of Pimlico, which is protected as a conservation area, having over three hundred and fifty grade two listed buildings and churches. Famous people from all walks of life have come to call Pimlico home such as Winston Churchill, the designer Laura Ashley, Actor Laurence Olivier, inventor of lawn tennis Major Walter Wingfield, Philosopher Swami Vivekananda, and illustrator as well as author Aubrey Beardsley.

Pimlico was the focal point of political activity in the early twentieth century, up until 1928 the offices on Eccleston square were the home of the Trades Union Congress and the Labour party. The structure of Dolphin square in the mid 1930’s accommodated one thousand two hundred and fifty flats, and were the London homes of many MP’s and public servants and for most of the world war two the flats were pretty much the headquarters of the Free French. Most of Pimlico was redeveloped after the war due to bomb damage, a lot of its style and essence remained intact, but the Churchill gardens along with Lillington and Longmoore garden estates were transformed into other uses such as hotels. In 1950 district heating was the new development and originated in Pimlico making it affordable and efficient for all residence by using waste heat from Battersea Power Station, now antiquated, and a new energy centre heats the water with new gas fired boilers and engines.
