Exhibition Road is a street in South Kensington, London, England. It is named after the Great Exhibition of 1851 held in Hyde Park to the north.

The road runs between South Kensington tube station and the location of the exhibition in the park. It is bordered by several major museums including the Natural History Museum (incorporating the former Geological Museum), the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Science Museum. The main entrance of Imperial College London is also located here. Further north is the Royal Geographical Society on Prince's Gate, which leads from Exhibition Road to one of the entrances on the south side of Hyde Park. The modern Ismaili Centre and the London Goethe Institute are also on the road.

The Exhibition Road Project

The Exhibition Road Project is a plan by the local authority, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, to improve the street's design to reflect its cultural importance.[1] The scheme also looks at surrounding streets. The general aim is to discourage through traffic and give pedestrians greater priority over any remaining traffic. The project also seeks to improve the artistic and architectural merit of the streetscape of Exhibition Road.[2] The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints also has a Chapel on this road
