Georgian London
Street and Business Index

Tea Party

The focus of the Index is London at the beginning of the nineteenth century, but many of the buildings date much earlier and stand much later. This document is not a complete description of London spanning the entire Georgian Era, 1714 to 1837, but should eventually provide an accounting of London's fashionable sites, shops and addresses between the close of Ranelagh Gardens and the completion of the Quadrant. It is my hope that the Index will supplement any period maps you may have (if you don't have one check out this 1827 map of London on the web) and make your imagination's next journey to Georgian London more complete and meaningful. We have categorized information by address, and class (residences, merchants, pubs, etc.). You might also enjoy Kent's directory, a list of London merchants in 1794 listed in alphabetical order.

Please keep in mind that this is a work in progress. My data entry is always much behind our research. I believe all the links work, but this document is far from complete. Please be patient as we are still under construction; in exchange I promise not to post any hard-hat areas. I make a great effort to maintain accuracy, but contradictory sources leave some information (particularly dates) in some doubt. You can contact me with questions or comments at webmaster. Thank you! Visit us again soon we update this site regularly.


"If you wish to have a just notion of the magnitude of this city, you must not be satisfied with seeing its great streets and squares, but must survey the innumerable little lanes and courts."--Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)
