Bellevue Street formerly ran from Dorset Street to St Mary's Road. This area dates back to the 1820s: the 1829 Town Guide mentions newly erected cottages in Charlotte Place. In 1849 Brannon called this area an assemblage of humble dwellings at the back of Compton Walk. The street was named after Bellevue House which stood on the opposite side of London Road. The houses were demolished in the 1960s and Charlotte Place car park now occupies the site.
