In 2013, Wilson House reopened its doors following an extensive 12-month refurbishment. It is comprised of 22 inter-connected Victorian period houses with a brand new, purpose built residential block to the rear. Close to St Mary's Campus in bustling Paddington, you'll have free access to the gym and pool there. It's also just a 30 minute walk to our South Kensington Campus across Hyde Park.
Wilson House is named after Charles Wilson, 1st Baron Moran, who was the Dean of St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School (now part of Imperial College London). Charles Wilson was also famous for being Sir Winston Churchill’s personal physician.
