Early lifeEdit

He was the brother of fellow architect Charles Worley.[2]


Allinson states that Robert Worley, of the architectural practice Worley & Saunders, was "involved in all kinds of speculative developments". He and his brother Charles are listed jointly as the architects of 41 Harley Street.[1]

Robert Worley and James Ebenezer Saunders formed the architectural practice Worley & Saunders.

Worley designed Sicilian Avenue, Holborn and the London Pavilion (now part of the Trocadero Centre), Piccadilly Circus, and Albert Court, a mansion block next to the Royal Albert Hall, all of which are now Grade II listed).[2]
