Behind the art deco splendour of Barker’s department store, this square is one of the oldest in London.  Kensington Square was laid out in 1685 and still has a few of its early-18th century houses. The square became an important artistic haunt in the 19th century, attracting such artists as Edward Burne-Jones, the Pre-Raphaelite painter and illustrator, who lived at No. 41.  An array of blue plaques denote other famous former residents of Kensington Square, including two leading figures of the 19th century: the novelist William Makepeace Thackery, who lived at No. 16 and the renowned philosopher John Stuart Mill, at No. 18.
