The Widest Pavement in London



The Widest Pavement in London

One of the shortest high streets in London, but very wide.

Location: Whitechapel High Street, E1, E1

Description: Whitechapel High Street is one of the shortest high streets in London but a major traffic route through the East End.

The street was developed during the sixteenth century as part of the main route between London and Essex and was lined with coaching inns that closed when the railways were built in the mid nineteenth century.

And if this historical prowess wasn't enough for you, it also has the widest pavements in London.
