Originally a country lane running north-south along what is now the eastern boundary of Hyde Park, it became a fashionable residential address from the eighteenth century onwards, offering both views across Hyde Park and a position at the most fashionable western edge of London. It became lined with some of the largest privately owned mansions in London, including the Duke of Westminster’s Grosvenor House (replaced by the Grosvenor House Hotel) and the Holford family’s Dorchester House (demolished in 1929 and replaced in 1931 with The Dorchester), and the Marquess of Londonderry’s Londonderry House on the corner of the lane and Hertford Street, the site of which is now occupied by the Metropolitan Hotel.
