Hampstead Way was one of the major roads designed for Hampstead Garden Suburb.

It is the earliest road in the suburb.

On 2 May 1907, Henrietta Barnett turned the first spadeful of soil for the coming Suburb. A child recited a poem written for the occasion and other children struggled with fluttering ribbons on this windy day to plait them round a maypole. Speeches were delivered and where the first sod had been cut, a pair of cottages, 140 and 142 Hampstead Way, were soon built; a plaque marks them as the earliest dwellings.
