Bordering Soho immediately to the north of Oxford Street, Fitzrovia is an historic yet thoroughly modern neighbourhood, full of creativity and a fantastic community spirit with residents fiercely protective of it’s individuality – locals fought hard against the attempted ‘re-branding’ of the area to Noho in the early 2000’s. Make no mistake, this is no poor relation to Soho, if anything, Fitzrovia is the cool and sophisticated sibling…
The home of design, tech & creativity
Known as Fitzrovia since the 1930’s – a term supposedly coined by the denizens of literary London after their favoured local watering hole, the Fitzroy Tavern – the area has experienced a renaissance in recent years with some high profile development and even higher profile occupiers including Facebook & Netflix making the area home.
From the early 20th century literary elite to today’s 21st century tech pioneers, the area has always attracted those at the cutting edge of culture and creativity.
A huge mix of archicture from Georgian Squares and Victorian Mansion blocks to post-war brutalism and modern glass & steel edifices means there is a style to suit everybody. Transport links are some of the best in London with five tube stations serving the neighbourhood – Tottenham Court Road, Oxford Circus, Goodge Street, Warren Street & Great Portland Street.
City Streets, Village Vibes
Streets are mostly laid out in a grid formation, giving the area a distinct city block feel of say, New York. However, the area manages to maintain a genuine urban village vibe with a varied selection of design-focussed stores, countless artisan coffee spots, classic pubs and numerous top notch restaurants centred around both Charlotte Street & Great Titchfield Street.
Fit for a King
Head up any of the north-bound arterial streets and you’ll end up in The Regent’s Park, one of London’s finest.
Brunch or just some casual people watching? No problem. Fitzrovia has a cafe culture to rival Europe’s best.
