Dorset Square Area Guide
Dorset Square is the central feature of an urban layout planned by the Portman Estate (1815-20). The square, architecturally still intact, was laid out on the site of Thomas Lord's first cricket ground, established in 1787. Only the residents of the garden square have exclusive access. Properties here can command a premium, particulalry those that are located on the north side of the square as they enjoy bright south facing views to the garden.
