Kingsland Road looking north from the point where it becomes Shoreditch High Street. (January 2006).

Kingsland Road is the name of a road, part of the A10, in the London Borough of Hackney in England. It runs from the junction with Old Street and Hackney Road (the section of the A10 south of this is Shoreditch High Street) north to the junction with Balls Pond Road and Dalston Lane, where it changes its name to Kingsland High Street. Kingsland Road means the road to Kingsland, an old settlement that has been absorbed by modern Dalston. It is one of the oldest roads in England and is thought to follow the route of the Roman Ermine Street, later known as the Old North Road.

North of Regents Canal, Kingsland Road forms the boundary between East London on the east side of the road, and north London on the other.

Boy band Kingsland Road named themselves "Kingsland" after the road, before later expanding their name.[1]
