High Street Kensington

High Street Kensington. For centuries two roads, both Roman in origin, one following the lines of the High Street, were the only means of east-west communication in this part of London.

The first building in the vicinity took place during the reign of Charles II (1660-85) to the south of the present street, while the north side was built up during the 1780s. More development took place in the early 19th century, followed shortly afterwards by the arrival of the famous shops of the street.

Prior to the station's opening it was often referred to as KENSINGTON, but it was opened as HIGH STREET KENSINGTON on 1 October 1868. (See also Kensington Olympia.)
