This area was established at the beginning of the 19th century, although the name was known in the 17th century. The name gained by famous great white wheelers, which were fashionable during the 16th and 17th centuries.

The metro station was built here in 1906. Traffic here quickly grew and in 1928 it was necessary to rebuild the station to meet increasing crowds of people.

The luxury there was truly world class and it set a new benchmark for the entire hotel industry.

And from the beginning, that in the reign of Elizabeth I, was also known as the Haymarket street, which focused on prostitution.
