Check Hotel Room Rates in Singapore

Connaught Drive is a road in downtown Singapore. It connects Stamford Road on one end with St Andrew's Road on the other. Connaught Drive also branches off to Fullerton Road at a roundabout. It borders the southern part of the Padang, separating it from Esplanade Park.

Originally called New Esplanade Road, Connaught Drive was given its present name in 1907 to commemorate the visit of Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught and Strathearn and his wife Princess Louise Margaret of Prussia.1
