Part of the Savoy Palace
The Savoy Palace was considered the grandest nobleman’s residence of medieval London, until it was destroyed in the Peasants’ Revolt of 1381. It fronted Strand, on the site of the present Savoy Theatre and the Savoy Hotel that memorialise its name. In its area the rule of law was different from the rest of London.
