61 Swinton Street, the former King’s Head public house, was built in the 1770s. 65 Swinton was built in the 1770s as a residential dwelling. The buildings are Grade II listed and are within the Bloomsbury Conservation Area.
The proposal is for the conversion of the building from public house with ancillary accommodation to a bistro over the ground and basement floors, 2 no. self-contained flats at ground and first floors and 12 room hotel linked to neighbouring 65 Swinton Street. 65 is a conversion from residential dwelling to 20 room hotel. Along with alterations and extensions including a three storey rear extension. The aim is to rejuvenate the dilapidated historic building up to a high standard helping to promote a successful and inclusive Camden economy.
The scheme for 61 is currently in planning. Whilst construction works started on 65 site in February 2014
