    Additional information

    • Built in 1716, 43 King Street is Covent Garden's oldest and arguably most important building. The handsome Grade II listed house was built by the Baroque architect Thomas Archer, and was originally named Russell House after its first owner Lord Russell, First Lord of the Admiralty. The building boasts an unrivalled position on King Street, with direct views over the iconic Covent Garden piazza, which was based upon the architecturally important Place des Vosges in Paris.
