East India House is the London headquarters of the East India Company, of which Lord Dalgliesh is the main shareholder. The building is situated on Leadenhall Street.



Actual History

The first East India House on the site was an Elizabethan mansion, previously known as Craven House, which the Company first occupied in 1648. This was completely rebuilt in 1726–9; and further remodelled and extended in 1796–1800. It was demolished in 1861.
