King’s Road

London, Great Britain


The street appeared in the 17th century with a sole purpose of providing king Charles II with a nice passageway to the Kew Gardens. It remained closed for public until 1830, and in the 1960s it was occupied by hippies and artistic folks. This atmosphere still persists: there are some 17th century houses still remaining, some of them bear plaques explaining why they are famous (e.g., “Actor and playwright Peter Ustinov lived here” – house 215). Now King’s Road is one of the trendiest and most expensive streets in London. It has boutiques of most upscale brands as well as shops by independent designers. But shopping is not what makes it special (pricetags in most places are rocket-high) – King’s Road is an extremely nice for a simple walk.
