  • Ladbroke Grove Historical Facts

    Although neighbouring Bayswater Road has been a route since Roman times, until the middle of the nineteenth century, the area that is now Ladbroke Grove was predominantly rural.

    However, the road is named after the developer of the Ladbroke Estate, James Weller Ladbroke.

    Around the same time, many of London's more stylish residents moved to the west of the city, taking up residence in the recently built properties that were every bit as grand as those in Belgravia, but were far more affordable.

    These properties later became divided into multiple dwellings and were a good option for cheap accommodation after the Second World War, though the area is now favoured by young professionals.
