History of Pimlico
The heart of Pimlico is a very tidy network of residential streets known as the Pimlico network. It was designed by architect Thomas Cubitt in the 1820s and is now protected by the Pimlico Conservation Area. Pimlico is considered a hidden gem in central London, and house prices are generally lower than its neighbors in southern Belgium. Famous for its Regency gardens and architecture, Pimlico is bordered by Victoria Station to the north, the River Thames to the south, Vauxhall Bridge Road to the east and Old Grosvenor Canal to the west. Notable is the pre-World War II Dolphin Market, Churchill Gardens, Lilithon Estate and the Longmoor Gardens Sanctuary, which is now separate. Pimlico residents included Winston Churchill, Laura Ashley, Bill Hughes, Laurence Oliver and many lawmakers. It starts with early history.
Following the plague in London and the Great Fire of nineteenth-century London, the demand and demand for real estate in London's West End grew and became Old Style. Pimlico is ready for development. In 1825, Thomas Cubitt received a contract for the development of Pimlico from Sir Grosvenor. The largest and richest houses were built on the two main streets and squares of Eccleston, Warwick and St George's: St George's Drive and Belgrave Road. Lupus Street had large houses and shops. A 1877 newspaper article described Pimlico as "a sanctuary for noble and professional people ... not rich enough to enjoy the true Belgravia, but rich enough to live in a private house." Residents said: "It's more lively than Kensington ... bigger than purely commercial Chelsea. Pimlico is dominated by the wealthy middle and upper classes, as can be seen in Booth's 1889 London Poverty Map, with part of Pimlico declining significantly in the 1890s. However, according to today's demographics, the middle age group is 30-44 years old. Earlier proposals in the 1800s suggested that the average age group would be 45-60 years old.
Due to its proximity to the Capitol, Pimlico became an important place for political activity. Until 1926, the Labor and Trade Union Congresses divided offices in Eccleston Square. A general strike was organized here in 1926. In the mid-1930s, Pimlico experienced a second wave of development with the construction of Dolphin Square. Today it is called the first independent "city". It consists of 1250 luxury apartments. He was very popular among legislators, that is, clowns. Ben Lyon and Bud Flanagan, journalists, Queen Anne and more. Although Pimlico survived the war, many of its essential properties were severely damaged by bombs. This is still evident on Denbigh Street, where residential architecture has changed. In the 1950s, the area became the center of an extensive redevelopment, such as Churchill Gardens, Lillington and Longmoor Garden Houses, and many large Victorian homes were converted into hotels and other uses.
In 1953, the second Duke of Westminster sold part of the Grosvenor mansion where Pimlico was built. In 1970, Mullet Booker real estate agent Roger Byron-Collins of Hyde Park Estate, Albion Street, played a key role in selling the 27-acre Pimlico property in Victoria, including 480 homes. Owner of CR Development. Pimlico joined the London Underground, a late addition to Victoria Road in 1972. After being designated as a nature reserve in 1968 (extended in 1973 and 1990), the area has undergone extensive regeneration. In a continuous wave of development, Pimlico combines exclusive restaurants and residences with facilities managed by Westminster City Council to provide a captivating social mix.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Pimlico
Pimlico is located in central London, west of Westminster, east of Chelsea and south of Victoria. This area is located on the River Thames and its location is so cute tucked between the two. But like Vauxhall across the river, Pimlico is often overlooked in suburban London.
I am always coming here, friends sometimes invite me to meet here, and I rarely seem to wander elsewhere !

Pimlico Cultural Scene
When Tate first opened its doors to the public in 1897 it had just one site, displaying a small collection of British artworks. Today we have four major sites and the national collection of British art from 1500 to the present day and international modern and contemporary art, which includes nearly 70,000 artworks.
The one and only TATE ! In 1889 Henry Tate, an industrialist who had made his fortune as a sugar refiner, offered his collection of British nineteenth-century art to the nation and provided funding for the first Tate Gallery.
Tate was a great patron of Pre-Raphaelite artists and his bequest of 65 paintings to the National Gallery included John Everett Millais’ Ophelia 1851–2 and J.W.Waterhouse’s The Lady of Shalott 1888. The bequest was turned down by the trustees because there was not enough space in the gallery.
A campaign was begun to create a new gallery dedicated to British art. With the help of an £80,000 donation from Tate himself, the gallery at Millbank, now known as Tate Britain, was built and opened in 1897. Tate’s original bequest of works, together with works from the National Gallery, formed the founding collection.
Henry Tate and Slavery
Over the years there has been much debate about Henry Tate’s association with slavery. As we reflect on this important question, we have invited the historical researchers at the Centre for the Study of the Legacies of British Slave-ownership at University College London to share their analysis. We have worked with them on a statement regarding what we know about the historical facts and some of the questions which remain unanswered.
