Chandos House

At the northern end stands the superbly proportioned façade of Chandos House (1771), now occupied by the Royal Society of Medicine. The work of Scots architect Robert Adam, it was built entirely of immaculate Portland stone, its only decorations, complemented by lantern-holders and candle snuffers, being a narrow frieze atop the second floor, a square porch and wrought-iron railings.
