Picture-perfect vintage location plays a starring role in the city

Duddell Street runs between Queen’s Road Central and Ice House Street, and at its upper end features a flight of stone steps built between 1875 and 1889. Surmounting the balustrades at the top and foot of the steps are the last four surviving gas street lamps in Hong Kong, which are still operated from 6pm-6am by The Hong Kong and China Gas Company as objects of historical interest. Both the steps and the gas lamps are Declared Monuments of Hong Kong. The street’s vintage atmosphere makes it a much favoured location among filmmakers and wedding photographers.
