Find Thomas Cubitt in Pimlico

A statue of Thomas Cubitt, the master builder whose work shaped large areas of 19th Century London, stands on Denbigh Street in Pimlico.

The son of a Norfolk carpenter, Cubitt's work covered significant areas of Bloomsbury, and Belgravia around Belgrave Square and Pimlico, as well as the east side of Buckingham Palace, and nearly a kilometre of the Thames Embankment, built and funded by the great man.
