The first floor of 19 Villiers St, just around the corner from our existing building on Nile Street now has the Creative Cohesion stamp on it and already home to 5 creative businesses. The building is grade 2 listed and has some great history, formally St. George's chapel (built in 1825) and aside is the former St. George's school, 1849.
