Bruton Street is a street in London's Mayfair district.

It runs from Berkeley Square in the south-west to New Bond Street in the north-east, where it continues as Conduit Street.

Notable residents have included Field Marshal John Campbell, 2nd Duke of Argyll, and Richard Brinsley Sheridan.[1]

On 21 April 1926, Queen Elizabeth II was born at No. 17, the London home of her grandfather, the Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne.[2] The house was damaged in the Blitz, and was later demolished.[2]

The fashion designer Norman Hartnell lived and worked at No. 26 from 1935 until his death in 1979.
