Designed by Robert Adam in the late 18th century, this Square was named after Charles Fitzroy, the 2nd Duke of Grafton, and was built to provide an elite residential location for aristocratic families residing in London. Many famous writers and statesmen such as Lord Salisbury, George Bernard Shaw and Virginia Woolf have lived here.
