Clifton House formerly stood on the west side of Regent’s Park Road just north of modern day Clifton Road, which was named after the house. Probably built in the mid 19th century, it was a residential property until 1907 when it was acquired for use as St George's School, run by La Sainte Union nuns until 1913. This is not to be confused with St George’s Catholic School for Boys. During World War One it was used as a St John’s Ambulance Hospital. It was demolished in the 1930s to make way for the new Thorner’s Almshouses.
