History to the present day
The buildings that now line Bedford Place were constructed in 1802-03 on the site of Bedford House that was demolished two years earlier. Bedford House was built and named Southampton House for Thomas Wriothesley, 4th Earl of Southampton in the early 1660's, just before the Great Fire that destroyed much of the City of London a mile to the East in 1666. In 1734, Southampton House was bought by the Duke of Bedford - a substantial landowner in this area - and renamed Bedford House.
