To Australians, English place names can be a little perplexing. I did not realise that until we were there.
In London we stayed in Sussex Gardens. It is not the name of suburb but a Paddington street.
We walked along Whitehall and lunched in a pub in Whitehall. Not Whitehall Street, Road or Place, just Whitehall.
The marvellous Gherkin building is to be found at number 30, St Mary Axe, (City of?) London. St Mary Axe? What kind of street name is that?
We changed trains at Embankment tube station. Not The Embankment, just Embankment.
One of London's very busy stations is Bank. Just Bank.
Monopoly players may remember Strand, a London street. How can it not be The Strand?
Just a quick list of what we have here; street, road, highway, crescent, close, court, drive, lane, rise, way, avenue, boulevard, esplanade and probably more. The only confusing one I have come across in Melbourne is Musswell Hill, a street in the suburb of Glen Iris. Do you have any local ones, or Australian ones to add that don't have the usual suffix?
NB tourists: In Melbourne you need to use the full name of the street you want. Fitzroy needs the appendage street if you mean the main street in St Kilda. Fitzroy is a suburb no where near St Kilda, however, there is also a Fitzroy Street in Fitzroy Street, so the correct phrase when asking directions is Fitzroy Street, St Kilda.
