Royal Parade, TW9

Place Name

Originally called Station Road when it was laid out in 1886 because it led from Leyborne Park to Kew Gardens Station. But from 1899 the section at the Leyborne Park end was renamed Royal Parade and the part running in front of the station was named Station Approach. The name change was possibly to enhance the area’s appeal to visitors.
