Built in 1939, 107-109 Charing Cross Road, The St Martins School of Art had a presence on the site until 2011 when it relocated to a new purpose- built campus at Kings Cross Central as part of UoA. It is known as Central St Martins (CSM). Their new building at 107-109 Charing Cross Road was purpose-built in 1939 to house St Martin's School of Art (founded in 1854). This establishment merged with the Central School of Arts & Crafts in 1989 when Central Saint Martins was formed. This evocative building is where generations of artists, designers, writers and performers studied their craft and began their careers.
