Sloane Square is a very fashionable square in the Knightsbridge area and is a fun place to be seen with your delectable escort.
The square is named after Sir Hans Sloane who was a wealthy collector and who had purchased the manor of Chelsea in 1712. Sir Hans was also a founding member of the Chelsea Physic Garden and his great art collection was bequeathed to the nation and now resides within the British Museum.
The square lies between the Kings Road and Sloane Street and in the 1980s gave its name to the “Sloane Ranger” referring to the young members of the upper classes who were often unemployed , terribly boorish or both! Have some fun with your escort as you sit at a cafe in this most well known of London squares and see if you can still see the vestiges of these rangers albeit they are now in their 40s.
Your lovely escort will undoubtedly want to visit the famous department store,Peter Jones which is on the square- this was built in 1935 and was the first building structures in Britain to use a glass-curtain design.
She will definitely want to stroll down the Kings Road which leads into the square and pretend she is still in the Swinging Sixties when this road was made famous for its trendy fashion stores and music. There are a number of places of interest in and around the square.
The square is home to the Royal Court theatre which is renowned for pioneering some ground-breaking plays over the year including a number works by George Bernard Shaw, John Osborne and Arnold Wesker. You must take your intelligent escort to see one of the current plays being staged at this lovely theatre.
You should also take her for a visit to the National Army Museum which is nearby Sloane Street and experience something different and if your stylish escort appreciates good design you certainly should take a look at the church on Sloane Street, Holy Trinity which is known as the Cathedral of the Arts and Crafts movement and built in 1890. Be careful that you don’t go too far up Sloane Street because as you approach Knightsbridge your escort will not be able to go into the many designer stores there.
You will probably want to stay in one of Knightsbridge’s luxurious hotels – we would recommend the Mandarin Oriental where you can treat your sexy escort to a night of passion in one of its presidential suites. Let her excite you by wearing some of the gorgeous underwear you have bought her from Harrods.
