Bagnigge House



Bagnigge House

Bagnigge House, summer home and springs of Nell Gwynne.

Location: 61-63 Kings Cross Road

Description: A spacious country house stood on this spot for hundreds of years until the 19th century called Bagnigge House, next to the two local springs (now lost).

It is documented that it was a summer residence for Charles II's mistress Nell Gwynne.

The spa was opened to the public around the 1760's, and it became a fashionable meeting place; there was a bowling green and skittle alley, and tea and ale was served.

The site is now heavily built upon but the springs are commemorated in local road names of 'Wells Street' and 'Gwynne Place'. A stone inscription said to have come from Nell Gwynne's House is now set into the wall of number 63, Kings Cross Road.
