Cadogan Estate's portfolio extends westwards along the Kings Road, in a piecemeal way, from Peter Jones (at the Sloane Square end). The special character of the Kings Road is in part a legacy of its 1960s fame at the centre of ‘swinging London' and its pedigree for very many years as a welcome refuge for bohemian spirits.
The area offers a diverse range of merchandise including a wide choice of fashion brands which mix alongside restaurants and cultural experiences.
The Duke of York Square is located on the Kings Road opposite Peter Jones. A fusion of period architecture mixed with sympathetic new design, it was created from the former Territorial Army Barracks which was originally the Royal Military School. It is now the home of the famous Saatchi Gallery; one of London’s “must see” destinations for modern art.
Every Saturday between 10.00am and 4.00pm the Duke of York’s Square hosts an open air fine food market. This offers both fresh produce and an eclectic range of international eating experiences.
The relaxed surroundings of the Square set amongst striking water features provide a relaxed oasis of elegance and history. With over 30 retail units and a choice of six café/restaurants all with external seating, it is quite simply a beautiful place to enjoy life.
It hosts a wonderful choice of retailers encompassing lifestyle brands and stylish contemporary fashion. Anchored by one of Zara’s largest stores in Europe, it is also home to the only Liz Earle and Mary Quant stores in the UK.
