Bond Street

Where the rich go shopping

Bond Street is a major shopping street in the West End of London that runs north-south through Mayfair between Oxford Street and Piccadilly. It has been a fashionable shopping street since the 18th century and is currently the home of many high price fashion shops. The southern section is known as Old Bond Street, and the northern section, which is rather more than half the total length, is known as New Bond Street. This distinction, however, is not generally made in everyday usage. It is one of the most expensive strips of real estate in the world.

Bond Street takes its name from Sir Thomas Bond, the head of a syndicate of developers who purchased a Piccadilly mansion called Clarendon House from Christopher Monck, 2nd Duke of Albemarle in 1683 and proceeded to demolish the house and develop the area. They also built nearby Dover Street and Albemarle Street. At that time the house backed onto open fields and the development of the various estates in Mayfair was just getting underway. Development moved predominantly from south to north, which accounts for the southern part of the street being 'Old' Bond Street, and the Northern half being 'New' Bond Street - the latter was added in a second phase 40 years later.

At one time Bond Street was best known for top end art dealers and antique shops, clustered around the London office of Sotheby’s auction house, which has been in Bond Street for over a hundred years. A few of these remain, but most of the shops are now occupied by fashion boutiques, including branches of most of the leading premium priced designer brands in the world. There are also a few miscellaneous upmarket shops such as jewellers. The street features an unusual statue of Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who are portrayed sitting on a park bench in conversation.

In 2010, Bond Street was Europe's most expensive retail location.

Bond Street is a square on the British Monopoly board, the same colour as Regent and Oxford Street.

Bond Street tube station lies near the top end of New Bond Street at the junction with Oxford Street. The entrance to the station is inside a shopping arcade on Oxford Street. The station was first opened on 24 September 1900 by the Central London Railway, three months after the first stations on the Central Line opened.

John Rocque Map of London (1762) FREE DOWNLOAD
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers central London at a reduced level of detail compared with his 1745-6 map.
