Carlton Place runs north east from Bedford Place to London Road, where it joins the southern part of Carlton Crescent. Like Bedford Place it is a product of ‘Regency’ architecture, though more homogeneous. It still contains some interesting buildings, including nos. 4-7, a terrace of four three-storey houses situated at the eastern end of Carlton Place (image below) and nos. 8-10, a terrace of similar style. Both terraces were probably built in the 1830s or 1840s and are now Grade II listed. The houses were private residences until World War Two after which they were converted to office and retail use. The building at 32 Carlton Place, situated on the north side of the street, was built as a riding school in 1846-7 by local architect William Hinves.
