Walker's Court, London, W1F
In December 2013, planning consent was obtained for the redevelopment of Walker's Court and surrounding buildings. We are also delighted to be able to announce that the iconic Raymond Revuebar sign is to be reinstated as a memorial to our founder and to maintain the sense of identity this location has for Soho residents and visitors alike.
Walker's Court is the principal Northbound conduit to Berwick Street, with strategic opportunities and a role to play in the success of proposed redevelopments in the Berwick Street area. Walker's Court is situated near to the centre of the Soho Conservation Area. The buildings comprising the proposal site are not noted for any particular historic or architectural merit but they are placed in the context of several others that are. The Court itself is a narrow pedestrianised street between Brewer Street and Peter Street and links Rupert Street with Berwick Street, which is popular with tourists and the local workers and works as a North-South connecting route to and from the heart of the West End. Our proposals include the resurrection of the famous Boulevard Theatre - home of the original Comic Strip comedy show (Dawn French, Adrian Edmonson et al) and new offices for SEL, providing us with a return to our spiritual home.
