Cromwell Road is a major road in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London, and is designated part of the A4. It was created in the 19th century and is named after Oliver Cromwell.

It starts as West Cromwell Road near West Kensington tube station, continuing eastwards from Talgarth Road. It becomes Cromwell Road proper as it crosses Earl's Court Road.

It travels through South Kensington, just south of Cromwell Hospital, then past Gloucester Road and Gloucester Road tube station. The next major crossroads comes at the intersection with Queen's Gate, on the corner of which stands Baden-Powell House, the former headquarters of The Scout Association. The road then passes to the south of a museum-academic complex informally known as Albertopolis, including the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum, Imperial College London and the Victoria and Albert Museum, near South Kensington tube station. Near this complex, at the junction with Exhibition Road, it becomes Cromwell Gardens for a short stretch before it joins Brompton Road. Another note-worthy building is the Embassy of Yemen in London at 57 Cromwell Street, opposite the Natural History Museum.
