The street has had a long association with music and entertainment, most notably the Windmill Theatre, and is now home to the Ripley's Believe It or Not! museum and the Trocadero shopping centre.Contents1 Early history 2 Medical school 3 Red Lion public house 4 Entertainment 5 ReferencesEarly history[edit] The street took its name from a windmill on the site which was recorded 1585 and demolished during the 1690s.[1] In a parliamentary survey of 1658 the mill was described as "well fitted with Staves and other materials". The area was developed around 1665 but the building was speculative and of poor quality; this led to a royal proclamation in 1671 that prohibited unlicensed development in " Windmill
