Sloane Square

Sloane Square station was opened on 24 December 1868 by the Metropolitan District Railway when the company opened the first section of its line.

The construction of the station was complicated by the crossing of the site by the River Westbourne which ran through Hyde Park as the Serpentine Lake, and was originally crossed by the Knight's Bridge at Knightsbridge. The river was carried above the platform in a large iron pipe suspended from girders. It remains in place today

Meanwhile, Sloane Square itself lies at the east end of the trendy King's Road and at the south end of Sloane Street.
In the early 1980s, it lent its name to the Sloane Rangers, the young underemployed and ostentatiously well-off members of the upper classes. Lady Diana Spencer, before she become Princess of Wales was considered the epitome of a Sloane Ranger.

The Square has two notable buildings: Peter Jones department store and the Royal Court Theatre.
