Route 274 commenced operating on 25 May 1991 between Camden Town and Marble Arch replacing the withdrawn section of route 74 between Camden Town and Baker Street. The route was initially operated by Chalk Farm garage with double-deck Leyland Titans. In September 1992, the route was converted to midibus operation using Dennis Darts. On the closure of Chalk Farm garage in 1993, the allocation transferred to Holloway garage.
On 1 March 1997, the route was extended from Camden Town to Islington and on 1 February 2003, from Marble Arch to Lancaster Gate station in preparation for the introduction of the London congestion charge.
On 26 July 2003, the allocation was transferred from the overcrowded Holloway garage to King's Cross garage. On 20 March 2004, route N274 was renumbered 274 making it a 24-hour route. Upon being re-tendered, the route was retained by Metroline with a new contract commencing on 25 June 2011. On the same date, the night service was withdrawn.
