Place  From 1831  To 1973

This hospital was established in 1818 in Suffolk Street as the West London Infirmary and Dispensary. 1821 moved to Villiers Street, becoming known as Charing Cross Hospital in 1827. A new building was opened in Agar Street in 1834 and was extended several times. In 1928 it expanded into the next-door building when that was vacated. It moved out to Fulham in 1973.
