Carlisle Place, central London

On the corner of Carlisle Place, which has some of the oldest mansion blocks in London, is the eye-catching Manning House, which Westminster Council describes as stock-brick palazzo built in 1867. The council says the building served as the Archbishop of Westminster’s Palace from 1873 to 1901 and was reconstructed as offices in the 1960s. 

Facing Manning House are the "sumptuous" Cardinal Mansions, which were built at the end of the nineteenth century
