Surprisingly quiet, yet with Oxford Street just minutes away, there really is a treasure trove of places to discover within its bohemian charm.
Heading to Fitzroy Square, one of the finest garden squares in London, the surrounding grand architecture gives you a glimpse into the story of London. Surprisingly quiet, yet with Oxford Street just minutes away, there really is a treasure trove of places to discover within its bohemian charm. It once was the home of writers George Bernard Shaw and Virginia Woolf, and still attracts many creatives today. It is the ideal area for commuters, with Goodge Street right in the heart of Fitzrovia; it is also close to Soho, Marylebone, St Pancras, and the West End, offering easy access within and out of the city.
If you are looking for a more peaceful location to live in, yet still in easy distance of all the action, Fitzrovia is certainly an area to investigate. Full of individuality, it’s bursting with wonderful independent cafes, restaurants and stores providing a personal touch that is completely welcoming, and let’s not forget the quirky. Pollocks Toy Museum houses a collection of Victorian toys and old playthings within two unrestored Georgian townhouses, which add to the whole experience. With one of the UK’s oldest natural history collections, Grant Museum of Zoology is fascinating; among its 68,000 zoological specimens you will find a dodo, quagga skeletons, and one of their more bizarre objects, a large jam jar packed with preserved moles.
Amidst the eccentricity of Fitzrovia you can find breathtaking places to dine, such as Berners Tavern offering a seasonal British menu from Michelin-starred chef, Jason Atherton. Opened in 1955, Spaghetti House wanted to introduce people to simple and fresh Italian food, and it still does this today. For a good cup of coffee, our team will tell you there is one place you must try in Fitzrovia and that’s Kaffeine, the independently owned café and espresso bar was inspired by the coffee culture in Australia and New Zealand.
