Haymarket was originally developed in the seventeenth century with a hay market operating here until 1830. Today the conservation area's mixed character and appearance reflects its historical development; it is dominated by buildings dating from the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, most notable being the Burberry shop on Haymarket of 1912. There are also a number of earlier buildings of interest, including No. 34 Haymarket, a mid eighteenth century townhouse and 8 Oxenden Street which dates from 1643, although has been re-fronted.
The area was first designated as a conservation area in 1968 as part of the Regent Street and St James Conservation Areas, and re-designated in 1990 as the Haymarket Conservation Area.
