Bryanston & Dorset Square

About our ward 

Bryanston & Dorset Square stretches from Edgware Road (West) to Gloucester Place (East) and Oxford Street (South) to Rossmore Road (North) with Westminster Council House at Marylebone Road. We have a small but very enthusiastic committee including the older and younger generations, professionals and pensioners, together with three experienced councillors. We hold regular social events such as the Annual Garden Party and the Hollowe'en Party where guest speakers are well known politicians, including our local MP, Mark Field. We campaign on both national and local issues throughout the year.

Sign up for regular emails, full of interesting local news for people living in Bryanston and Dorset Square. You can opt out at any time and we won't share your email address with anyone else.
