Pimlico is a beautiful area of London, well known for its gardens, beautiful architecture and rich history. Did you know it was originally known as Ebury or ‘The Five Fields’? It’s believed the name ‘Pimlico’ haled from Benjamin Pimlico and the famous brown ale he once served in his tavern. Following the regeneration after the Great Fire of London, Pimlico became a fashionable place to live, becoming an overspill of the increasingly popular West End. Thomas Cubitt began work developing Pimlico into the handsome gird system of homes seen today with the larger more affluent homes being built around the beautiful, private square gardens that are still treasured today.
