Old War Office, 57 Whitehall
Although, slightly out of our area, this prominent building may be of interest to many. The proposal is for conversion by 57 Whitehall Sarl to a hotel and apartments.
A public exhibition was held on 5th & 6th September. If you were unable to attend and have any questions, please contact Nick Dines
Our visit to Parliament's hidden medieval places, 28th July 2016
Thorney Tales (9) - Governor of Duck Island
Thorney Tales (8) Westminster Opera House
But not completely. The foundations were kept - and are still there today. When Scotland Yard took over in 1890 some of the rooms originally built for opera stars were converted into cells for prisoners. One of the subterranean passages built as part of the opera house was connected to a platform on the District Line at Westminster Station. Another passage was reported to go to Parliament to give peers and MPs easy access to the opera. The building was put to good use by the metropolitan police. But is is sad to think that Thorney Island missed out on an opera house of its own.
