Main Street Avenue

The prominent Main Street Avenue in Georgetown is a cultural relic of the city for many reasons. The 1909 built National Library, Bank of Guyana, the Walter Roth Museum, the Prime Minister’s House and War Memorial stand on this street. It was also the venue for Queen Elizabeth’s coronation in June 1953, and still remains the main path for any parade and national celebration. While one side of the avenue is dotted with distinguished addresses, the other has a vibrant atmosphere with many restaurants, nightlife spots, and local vendors selling their art. The Main Street Avenue is a vivid representation of Guyana’s past and present.
