Soho Square

Soho Square was laid out in the 1680s on land known as Soho Fields, which was granted by King Charles II for development. For this reason its original name was King Square and Charles’s statue is still to be found in the centre of the square. It was initially a very fashionable address, including several fine houses such as Monmouth House, Carlisle House and Falconberg House. Over the centuries there has been much redevelopment of the buildings around the square, a process which is continuing with the construction of a new Crossrail station.

And St Patrick's church was once Carlisle House, the fashionable home of Teresa Imer, Casanova’s lover, and the mother of his ten-year-old daughter, Sophia.
