NOTES: This square, situated to the south-west of Oxford Street, was laid out in 1717 and was named after George I, formerly the Elector of Hanover. Most of its housing has since been reconstructed in a variety of styles. The gardens were re-landscaped with diagonal paths and a pond with a fountain at the north end soon after World War II. They were eventually purchased by Westminster City Council in 1997 to prevent them from becoming derelict.
