Guide to Poland Street in London

In 1690 James Pollett began granting building leases of plots of land in Little Gelding's Close "in a new street designed to be made of thirty foot wide from the house or inn called by the sign of the King of Poland in Tyburn Road"

Poland Street first appears by name in the ratebooks in 1689 but it then applied only to the six houses on either side of the inn on the south side of Tyburn Road (now Oxford Street) between Wardour and King (now Kingly) Street. This inn, from which Poland Street evidently takes its name, stood on the site of No. 161 Oxford Street, at the north-west corner of Poland Street, and was probably so called in commemoration of the victory of John Sobieski, King of Poland, over the Turks in 1683. By 1749 the inn was known as the Wheatsheaf, and in 1925 its name was changed to the Dickens Wine House. Fifteen years later the building was destroyed by a bomb, and the site is now used for other purposes.
