Our Buildings

Classes are held at 42 Queen Square, London WC1N 3AQ (main site) and 10 Great Turnstile, London WC1V 7JU, which we share with our sister organisation the Mary Ward Legal Centre. 


42 Queen Square 

Our much loved home at 42 Queen Square, a Grade II listed Georgian building fronting a leafy square in Bloomsbury, houses our Art and Sculpture studios, various classrooms all with modern technology as well as original Georgian features, and a hall for music practice and performances.  Here you will also find our very popular vegetarian café and a roof garden, which are open when the Centre is open – weather permitting in the case of the roof garden.

Great Turnstile

10 Great Turnstile 

Our recently acquired and refurbished building at 10 Great Turnstile (10GT) is a 1980s former office block, now transformed to provide more classroom space for the Centre and also offices for our sister organisation, the Mary Ward Legal Centre. While maintaining the Mary Ward ethos of being the friendly place to learn, this building is located closer to the business sector of Holborn, and benefits from the bustle and buzz of local shops, banks and offices. 10GT has large and airy classrooms and purpose-built basement movement and dance studios – The Robert Rich Studios – named after a former resident of the Mary Ward Settlement.
