HistoryEdit

The street was first developed in the early 18th century on the Conduit Mead estate, which the Corporation of London had owned since the 15th century, and was a popular place for upper-class Londoners to socialise.[1][2] Most properties have since been demolished and rebuilt, but a handful have survived.[1]

The MP Charles James Fox was born in Conduit Street in 1749.[1]

PropertiesEdit

No. 9 Conduit Street was built for the MP Robert Vyner in 1779.[1] It was built by James Wyatt and is now Grade II* listed.[3]
