Location

One Pepys Street is a private block of luxury apartments superbly located in the City of London just two minutes walk from the Tower of London.

Nearby transport connections include Tower Hill underground station, Tower Gateway Docklands Light Railway (DLR) station, Fenchurch Street and Liverpool Street stations and a wide selection of bus routes.

Pepys Street is not a long established street and did not exist until about 1912. Previously there was a short street called Colchester Street leading off Coopers Row and ending at Savage Gardens.

Land further west, at what is now the junction with Seething Lane, had long been the site of the Navy Office and nearby had stood Crutched Friars House. About 1912 the former Colchester Street was extended to connect Coopers Row with Seething Lane and the result was Pepys Street - named after Samuel Pepys who worked and lived nearby.

History of 1 Pepys Street

One Pepys Street was built by Galliard in 2002 on land that is owned by the Drapers’ Company of the City of London and on which was formerly situated a Trinity Bonded Warehouse. The Drapers’ Company has its origin as a medieval guild and goes back to the 14th century.

Samuel Pepys, the 17th century English diarist lived and worked in Seething Lane at the Navy Office which stood on what is now Seething Gardens. In 1660 Pepys was appointed as Clerk of the Acts to the Navy Board and in 1673 he was appointed Secretary to the Admiralty Board. Pepys effectively created the Admiralty as a department of state and dominated naval administration for almost thirty years.

Samuel Pepys finally retired in 1688 but is better known for his diary written between 1660 and 1669. The diary provides one of the few eye witness accounts of the Great Fire of London which devastated the City of London in 1666. Pepys and his wife are buried at St Olave’s church in Hart Street.
