HistoryEdit

The street is crossed by Conway Street in the east and Fitzroy Street at its midpoint. On the south side of Warren Street lie Warren Mews, Richardson's Mews, Grafton Mews, and Whitfield Street. It was mostly constructed in the late 18th century.[2]

It is named after Admiral Sir Peter Warren whose daughter and heiress Anne was wife of Charles FitzRoy, 1st Baron Southampton and thus the first Lady Southampton.[3] Originally a residential street, it now contains mostly shops and businesses.
