Sloane Square is a small hard-landscaped square on the boundaries of the central London districts of Knightsbridge, Belgravia and Chelsea, located 2.1 miles (3.4 km) southwest of Charing Cross, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The square was formerly known as 'Hans Town', laid out in 1771 to a plan by Henry Holland Snr. and Henry Holland Jnr. Both the square and Hans Town were named after Sir Hans Sloane (1660–1753). The square has two notable buildings. Peter Jones department store designed by Reginald Uren of the firm Slater Moberly and Uren in 1936 and now a Grade II* listed building.
The other is the Royal Court Theatre first opened in 1888 which was important for avant-garde theatre in the 1960s and 1970s. Do check out the Venus Fountain in the centre of the square which was constructed in 1953, designed by sculptor Gilbert Ledward. And if you happen to be at Sloan Square on a Sunday, the renowned Sunday Roast is not to be missed. Available at most places in Sloan Square.
