A typical Victorian garden, with mature trees, winding paths, lawns, borders, flowerbeds and children's play area. The square was developed in the 1840s to designs by George Basevi and ushered in a new era of Italianate townhouse design in London.
The square takes its name from John Thurloe, Oliver Cromwell's Secretary of State. In the 18th century the land passed from Anne Browne to her second husband, Thurloe's grandson.
