The Strand runs for three quarters of a mile and is the main road connecting Westminster to the City. It was originally a bridle path which ran along the riverbank but achieved its present location when the Victorians shored up the banks of the Thames to form the Embankment. In the 1890's the Strand contained more theatres than any other street in London; today only three remain - the Adelphi, the Savoy and the Vaudeville.
