Inscription

Site of the King's Wardrobe, destroyed in the Great Fire, 1666.
The Corporation of the City of London

Site: King's Wardrobe (1 memorial)

EC4, Wardrobe Place, 5

This must be the most surreal street in London. It has pavements and kerbs, and a cobbled road-way. So far, so good, but the pavement is continuous so there is no way a vehicle could reach the road, and anyway it is fully occupied by mature trees. Oh, and it's named after a piece of bedroom furniture. Magritte woz here.

2014: Londonist posted a good piece about this venue with pictures of an some rare 17th century wall paintings at Number 2.
