Guide to... Kingly Street

Kingly Street was known as King Street until 1906. It was developed out of the foot-path from Piccadilly to St. Marylebone, King Street first appears by name in the ratebooks in 1686. It was described in 1720 as being "a pretty good Street, having divers very good Houses fit for Gentry".

Kingly Street is very narrow and now looks rather drab, since the whole of the west side, except for St. Thomas's Church, is occupied by the backs of the tall blocks fronting on to Regent Street. However, a focal point has been provided by the arch with its gabled, timber-framed superstructure which spans the north end, linking the two blocks of Liberty and Company on either side.

Much rebuilding has taken place, however, from the early nineteenth century onwards, and there is now little external evidence of anything previous to that date. Up to about the middle of the nineteenth century the rebuilding seems to have taken the form of houses with shops in the ground storey but since then the new buildings have been mostly warehouses and offices. The pub at the corner of Ganton Street has existed on this site since at least 1737.
