Soho Square

I know I shouldn’t really like the absurd Tudorbethan hut in the middle of Soho Square which has displaced Cibber’s statue of Charles II and hides an electricity sub-station, but I do:-

This is Charles II, removed in 1876 and returned in 1938:-

To the east is St. Patrick with its Tuscan campanile:-

And to the north Aston Webb’s French Protestant Church, his favourite work, opened in 1893, some time before he did the façade of the V&A:-

One thought on “Soho Square

  1. Having worked in Soho Square for five years in the late 60s/early 70s, I agree.
    It has a charm that grows on you. Indeed the whole Square has a curious charm, despite its incoherence.
