It was laid out in the early 18th century on the City of London's Conduit Mead Estate, which also included Bond Street and which had been acquired by the Corporation in the 15th century to safeguard the conduits supplying the City with water.
Only a few of the original houses now survive - Nos. 42, 43 and 47 being notable examples. No. 9 was designed by James Wyatt in 1779 for Robert Vyner, MP. It is a beautiful three-bay stuccoed composition with giant Ionic pilasters and pedimented first-floor windows. In Victorian times it was occupied by the Royal Institute of British Architects. On the south side is the Westbury Hotel.
