Joshua Torriano inherited land here and in 1793 laid out this road and neighbouring Leighton Grove and Crescent.

Torriano Avenue is divided into two by Leighton Road. The section running between Camden Road and Leighton Road is one way. Entering from Camden Road, there is a large development of apartments in progress on a site formerly a school. The architecture is mixed along this stretch with low rise red brick local authority housing alongside traditional Victorian terraces and the odd semi-detached house, many with small front gardens behind hedges or low fences. A large Weeping Willow tree is a great feature although there are also London Plane and Ash trees selectively placed along the pavements.

This is also home to Torriano Infant School and Torriano Junior School. Towards Leighton Road there are a couple of restaurants facing unimposing 3 storey flat fronted Victorian terraced houses.

You can only access the top section of Torriano Avenue by car from Leighton Road heading north or from Brecknock Road. This effectively prevents it from being a cut-through retaining its distinctively different feel - much quieter and more residential. It is set on steep incline, and the buildings reflect this, having access to the front door altering depending where you are on the slope. Some of the houses at the top end appear to be Georgian but are in fact Victorian.
