In the early 19th century, the street was the location of many fashionable shops, such as are now to be found in Bond Street. The congregation of rich carriages there was said to be one of the great sights of London at this time. It then became a centre of publishing of periodicals such as Country Life (no 8, designed in 1904 by Edwin Lutyens), The Stage and Vanity Fair. The auction business Sothebys started there as a bookseller.
Museum software company System Simulation is based in Burleigh House at no 28.
