Business in the Strand
Once the home of mansions built by aristocrats before the West End became the fashionable place to live, the Strand evolved into a place for entertainment. During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, taverns and then coffee houses were established on the street.
The eighteenth century also saw the arrival of several printers and publishers, which helped established the Strand as the hub for the British book trade. More recently, the street has several tourist and luggage outlets. There are also a number of dealers specialising in old postage stamps.
The Strand is also notable for education and justice. The Strand Campus of the King's College London is located next to St Mary-le-Strand church. Designed by Robert Smirke, it was built between 1829 and 1831.
The King's College Hospital has also been located on the street since 1840, although it has been part of the University of London since 1908. King's College London also operates from Strand House, Bush House and other nearby buildings in the Aldwych Quarter. The Royal Courts of Justice is also found on the Strand
The Strand Transportation Links
The Strand has been the home of Charing Cross railway station since 1864. The station is a major gateway for commuters travelling into Central London. Embankment, Covent garden and Temple tube stations are all within a ten minutes walk and bus routes also offer regular connections.
About the Strand
Strand, or the Strand, in the City of Westminster is a three-quarter mile long street running west to the heart of Central London. The major thoroughfare runs from Trafalgar Square towards Temple Bar in the City of London, where it becomes Fleet Street. The road's name is from the Old English word "strond", which means the edge of the ridge.
Historically, the Strand ran along the north bank of the River Thames. It was a popular residential area for the upper classes, including bishops and courtiers, who built large mansions and palaces between the Strand and the river from the twelfth to seventeenth centuries.
Properties included Arundel House (originally the townhouse of the Bishops of Bath and Wells), Durham House (the London residence of the Bishop of Durham and once the home of Anne Boleyn), Essex House (originally the Outer Temple of the Knights Templar), Savoy Palace (the residence of Richard II's uncle John of Gaunt) and Somerset House (originally built by Edward Seymour, the regent of England between 1547 and 1549).
After the aristocracy moved to the West End during the seventeenth century, the Strand became the home of coffee shops, taverns and restaurants. Theatres and music halls emerged during the nineteenth century, and many venues still stand to this day. Poets, authors and philosophers have called the Strand and nearby addresses home, including Charles Dickens and Virginia Woolf.
