Welcome to londonstreetguide

Now with over 1,200 streets. This will be a London history like no other. All too often, the past of our great capital tends to focus on its centre. We will go beyond the bright lights of the West End and the business hubbub of the City to explore the streets that, for most us, we call home.

The big names are important and they are included, but we’ve chosen to start with the suburbs. For now, it’s just about the names, every street has one – but what do they mean? How have they changed?

We’re publishing as many as we can every day. It’s a soft launch. But watch this space, this will be no sweeping history of London, it is a personal history of every street, road, alley, place, square, avenue, mews, yard, way, close, cul-de-sac, terrace, garden and path.
