This West London street first rose to fame in the 1960s when Mods and Rockers hung out in its quirky bars and stores. The designer Mary Quant had a popular fashion boutique here. Today, the Kings Road still has some independent boutiques such as R.Soles, a cowboy boot shop. Peter Jones department store is a good place to buy stylish homeware.
One of the most Instagrammable London cafes is at number 219. Peggy Porschen makes delicious cakes and their pastel pink bakery is picture perfect. Just off the King’s Road, Duke of York Square has several fashion boutiques and restaurants with outdoor terraces. The Saatchi Gallery Bar & Brasserie has a nice al fresco terrace.
King’s Road or Kings Road, is a major street stretching through Chelsea and Fulham, both in west London. It is associated with 1960s style and with fashion figures such as Mary Quant and Vivienne Westwood. Sir Oswald Mosley’s Blackshirt movement had a barracks on the street in the 1930s
