King’s Place lies off of Borough High Street.


During the late Mediaeval and Tudor periods, King’s Place was situated approximately where the end of the paved road from London Bridge occurred. The crossroads of Borough Road and Borough High Street was for this reasons called ’Stone’s End’ (or ’St. George’s Bar’).

In the time of John Stow, there were on both sides of Borough High Street only to this point.
