History

The existing 7-storey building was the headquarters of MI5 following the Second World War from 1945 until the mid-1970s.

Leconfield House is situated on a site that was once part of Chesterfield House - a Palladian mansion built from 1746-1752 for Philip Stanhope, the 4th Earl of Chesterfield. The house was designed by Isaac Ware. The building sat on the corner of South Audley Street and Curzon Street, facing the park. Demolished in 1934 and replaced by Chesterfield House and Leconfield House.
