Originally a country lane running north-south along what is now the eastern boundary of Hyde Park, it became a fashionable residential address from the eighteenth century onwards, offering both views across Hyde Park and a position at the most fashionable western edge of London. It became lined with some of the largest privately-owned mansions in London, including the Duke of Westminster’s Grosvenor House and the Holford family’s Dorchester House (demolished in 1931 and replaced byThe Dorchester), which are now both hotels. Park Lane today is renowned for its high-end car dealers, estate agents and hotels
