The northern section of the road is a bridge that goes over the Paddington branch of the Grand Union Canal, which is commonly referred to as the Westbourne Terrace Road bridge. The road is intersected by Delamere Terrace and Warwick Crescent in the north, and Blomfield Mews can be found on its eastern side.
The majority of the houses on Westbourne Terrace Road were built between 1850 and 1855 and are characterised by their stucco mid-nineteenth century terraced design. Most of these houses are grade II listed by Historic England, indicating their historical and architectural significance.
Margery Allingham, a famous crime fiction writer who lived from 1904 to 1966, resided at number 1 on Westbourne Terrace Road from 1916 to 1926. A green plaque has been installed to commemorate her time there.
