Clarion House stands on an historic site in St Anne's Court which passed from the crown to the Duke of Portland in the 17th century. For two centuries the court was a haven for political refugees from France and Switzerland and, in modern times, from Eastern Europe. The historic houses were demolished in 1967 but in the 1980's the site was brought back into housing use for local people by the Soho Housing Association. Clarion House was opened on 24th June 1987 by the Hon. Peter Brooke MP.
