I find both these sites helpful when I can't find a particular street, or am having trouble reading a census return.

This lists not only London Streets, but institutions, churches, professions, pubs and more.

Has some lovely detailed maps of London from 1560-1897 I was able to see almost all the streets one particular side of the family lived from 1841 through to the present day.

It's also interesting to compare the later maps with present day ones to see how much London has changed.
I could spend hours pouring over them, they're fascinating.

Hope you find them useful.
