Site: Sir Hans Sloane statue - Duke of York Sq (1 memorial)

SW3, Duke of York Square

The site is the former Duke of York’s barracks. It was vacated by the Territorial Army in 2003 and redeveloped to include a public square, housing and retail units. And the stunning Saatchi Gallery which shows some of the best and probably some of the worst contemporary art you are likely to see.
