"The wold's first attempt at an indoor ice rink was tried at the Baker Street Bazaar near Portman Square in 1844. It lacked a certain popularity, as the ice being mad from hog's lard and chemical salts, had a distinct whiff of cheese wafting from it!"

  1. About Connaught Square

    Connaught Square, in the City of Westminster (a London Borough), was the first square of city houses to be built in the Bayswater area. It was named after the Duke of Gloucester (who was also the Earl of Connaught), who had a house nearby. The current appearance of the square dates from the 1820s. The square is just north of Hyde Park, and to the west of Edgware Road. It is also within 300m of Marble Arch, and the western end of Oxford Street. Connaught Square's architecture is primarily Georgian. Redevelopment was initially planned in the early 18th century and the first of its 45 brick houses was built in 1828 as part of the Hyde Park estate by Thomas Allason.
