Kingsway

Kingsway is a major road in central London. It runs from High Holborn, at its north end in the London Borough of Camden, and meets Aldwych in the south in the City of Westminster.

The road forms the eastern boundary of Covent Garden, and is home to various buildings of the University of London. The closest tube stations are Holborn, and Temple.

The road was purpose built as part of a major redevelopment of the area in the 1900s which swept away a maze of small streets and slum dwellings.

It originally had an underground tram tunnel along most of its whole length. Part of this is still in use at the southern end as the Strand Underpass for cars. The northern entrance to the tunnel remains at the Holborn end.

There is also a Queensway in West London.
