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.

In 1824, when Charles Dickens was 12 years old, his father, John Dickens, was arrested and sent to Marshalsea Prison for failure to pay a debt. During this time, Charles (the only member of the family not imprisoned) took up residence in the back-attic of a house on Lant Street, a short walk away from the prison. Lant Street was in an area known as "The Mint" which was notorious for its overcrowded conditions.
