Houses originally part of the landscape


Holford House

Designed by Decimus Burton for private occupation, this was the largest of all the houses in the park. It was turned over for use by an ecclesiastical college (Regent’s Park Baptists college) from 1854 until it was bombed in WW2 after which it was demolished.

St Katharines Lodge

On St Katharine’s Green, this house was used in conjunction with St Katharine’s hospital opposite, including as a WW1 hospital. In WW2 it was bombed and had to be demolished.
