Kingsway Place is located within the Clerkenwell Conservation Area and is accessed via gates adjacent to St James’s walk. Designed by the Architect T.J. Bailey and officially opened by The Prince of Wales in 1893, it was sympathetically converted into apartments in 1999 and is sometimes referred to as The Mini Versailles.
