This website is about a unique Central London Trust which has been instrumental in urban regeneration in the city centre.

The Seven Dials Trust (formerly the Seven Dials Monument Charity) was set up in 1984 to restore one of London's "great public ornaments" and to promote major environmental improvements in Seven Dials. The Sundial Pillar was unveiled in 1989 by HM Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands.

Since then, the Trust, a small voluntary body, has continued to work in partnership with local authorities, major landowners, national agencies and local amenity groups to promote and bring about environmental improvements in this unique and historic conservation area, home to strong and vibrant residential and commercial communities as well as visitors from all over the world.

If you would like to help the trust please contact us and likewise if you have any comments, positive or negative, about what follows.
