Adam Street

Adam Street

Adam Street was one of the principal thoroughfares within the Adelphi complex, running through the eastern part of the site, from the Strand at its north end, to the riverfront at its south end. It backed up against another development, and its houses, particularly numbers 1-11 on the east side, were very small, with tiny light wells at the back behind the staircase, providing natural light to the rear rooms.

Numbers 19 and 20 (later 1a Royal Terrace) were demolished along with the rest of the central block of the Adelphi in 1936, and much of the rest of the street was demolished piecemeal. Number 18 (the former Adelphi Tavern) survives as part of the Royal Society of Arts building, and the fa├žades of numbers 6-10 survive, but much of the fabric behind has been replaced.
