Euston Road is a road in Central London that runs from Marylebone Road to King's Cross. The route is part of the London Inner Ring Road and forms part of the London congestion charge zone boundary, it is named after Euston Hall, the family seat of the Dukes of Grafton, who had become major property owners in the area during the mid 19th Century. The road was the central section of New Road from Paddington to Islington which opened in 1756 as London's first bypass, it provided a route along. Traffic increased when major railway stations, including Euston, opened in the mid-19th century and led to the road's renaming in 1857. Euston Road was widened in the 1960s to cater for the increasing demands of motor traffic, the Euston Tower was built around that time; the road contains several significant buildings including the Wellcome Library, the British Library and the St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel; the road starts as a continuation of the A501, a major road through Central London, at its junction with Marylebone Road and Great Portland Street.
It meets the northern end of Tottenham Court Road at a large junction with an underpass, it ends at King's Cross with Gray's Inn Road. The road ahead to Islington is Pentonville Road; the road is part on the edge of the London congestion charge zone. Drivers are not charged for travelling on the road but may be if they turn south into the zone during its hours of operation. King's Cross and St Pancras railway stations are at the eastern end of the road, the British Library is nearby, Euston railway station is a further west; the Euston Tower is a landmark on the road. The old and new headquarters of the Wellcome Trust are on its south side. From west to east the road passes Regent's Park, Great Portland Street, Warren Street, Euston Square and King's Cross St Pancras tube stations. London Bus Routes 205 and 30 run along the entire extent of Euston Road from Great Portland Street to King's Cross. Before the 18th century, the land along which Euston Road runs fields. Camden Town was a village retreat for Londoners working in the city.
Euston Road was part of New Road, promoted by Charles FitzRoy, 2nd Duke of Grafton and enabled by an Act of Parliament passed in 1756. Construction began in May that year, it was open to traffic by September; the road provided a new drovers' road for moving sheep and cattle to Smithfield Market avoiding Oxford Street and Holborn, ended at St John's Street, Islington. It provided a quicker route for army units to reach the Essex coast when there was a threat of invasion, without passing through the cities of London and Westminster, was a barrier between the increasing urban sprawl that threatened to reach places such as Camden Town; the Capper family, who lived on the south side of the proposed route, opposed its construction and complained their crops would be ruined by dust kicked up by cattle along the route. Capper Street, a side street off Tottenham Court Road, is named after the family. A clause in the 1756 Act stipulated that no buildings should be constructed within 50 feet of the road, with the result that most of the houses along it lay behind substantial gardens.
During the 19th century the law was ignored. Euston Station opened on the north side of New Road in July 1837, it was planned by Robert Stephenson on the site of gardens called Euston Grove, was the first mainline station to open in London. Its entrance, designed by Philip Hardwick, cost £35,000 and had the highest portico in London at 72 feet; the Great Hall opened in 1849 to improve accommodation for passengers, a statue of Stephenson's father, George was installed in 1852. The Dukes of Grafton had become the main property owners in the area, in 1857 the central section of the road, between Osnaburgh Street and Kings Cross, was renamed Euston Road after Euston Hall, their country house; the eastern section became the western Marylebone Road. The full length of Euston Road was dug up so that the Metropolitan Railway could be built beneath it using a cut-and-cover system and the road was relaid to a much higher standard; the new Anglican church of St Luke's Church opened on Euston Road in 1861.
The Euston station complex was controversially demolished in 1963 to accommodate British Rail's facilities. The replacement building opened in 1968, now serves 50 million passengers annually. Tolmers Village was in the tiny triangle on the north side of Euston Road between Hampstead Road and North Gower Street, it was built in the early 1860s over a former reservoir to provide affordable middle-class terraced housing but its proximity to a main road and the Euston Station complex meant it catered for the working classes. By 1871, around 5,000 residents were housed in a 12 acres area; the estate continued to expand throughout the early 20th century in a piecemeal fashion, attracted Greek and Asian immigrants following World War II. In the 1970s, the estate came under threat from property developers who wanted to demolish it and build offices, which led to demonstrations and protests, including supporters from University College; the plans were cancelled. The area around the junction with the Tottenham Court Road suffered significant bomb damage during the Second World War.
