Great Portland Street is in the London’s West End. It has a mix of Edwardian and Victorian architecture and, as a street, a long history dating back to 1726, when it was called John Street. In the early 20th century it was known as ‘Motor Row’ because many companies such as Benz, Austin and Vauxhall established showrooms there. It was also very well known as a place to purchase tailor made clothing.
The Dukes of Portland owned most of the area in the 18th & 19th century and so the name soon changed from John Street to Portland Road. It was finally renamed Great Portland Street in 1870. It is an unusual area in terms of layout as there is a grid pattern of streets running from east to west, often starting or ending at Great Portland Street. This is thought to be the result of a number of estates being developed at the same time locally. The road itself separates Fitzrovia, with its more artistic feel from Portland Place and Harley Street, which are undeniably posh.
Great Portland Street is in the City of Westminster and joins Oxford and Albany Streets. Regents Park is at the very north of Great Portland Street making it easily accessible on the A501. To the west is Marylebone and Fitzrovia lies to the west.
Great Portland street is lined with shops, restaurants, cafes and small boutiques. It is popular with tourists and local business people. There are hospitals and clinics dotted around the area and it’s a rather busy thoroughfare, which still maintains its historic charm.
In the past Great Portland Street was home to a number of intellectuals and artists including composer, Felix Mendelssohn, painter, Sir David Wilkie and architect, Sir Charles Barry. In the 1850’s the area was well known for its brothels and massage parlours and even was home to a ‘reformatory’ for prostitutes.I’d love some company in Great Portland Street.

Great Portland Street Station is close to Regents Park. It’s between Euston Square and Baker Street, making it an easy walk from both of those stations as alternative stops. The station itself was part of the world’s first underground railway.
Originally opened in 1863 as Portland Road, it became Great Portland Street Station in 1917. For some reason, six years later it was renamed Great Portland Street and Regents Park Station. Ten years later, in 1933, it finally reverted back to Great Portland Street Station and has had that name ever since. The current building is in a rather odd location on an intersection, where it was built in 1930.You can learn so much about the history while strolling along Great Portland Street.
