St. Martin’s & Strand
St. Martin’s Lane is Covent Garden’s western border, a bustling thoroughfare linking Seven Dials with Trafalgar Square and a gateway to the wider West End. Strand is the southern boundary of Covent Garden running parallel to the River Thames and linking the cities of London & Westminster. A neighbourhood that offers everything from river views and world class theatres, to green open space and village vibes.
A Tale of Two Cities
The link between Westminster and the City of London, modern Strand has shaken off it’s reputation as a traffic congested artery to be avoided, now boasting a Soho House at 180 Strand, a number of luxury residential developments and a wonderful new public space at the eastern end where it meets Aldwych around St. Mary’s Church opposite Kings College London.
St. Martin’s Lane boasts numerous venues including The Duke of York’s and Noel Coward theatres and the London Coliseum, home of the English National Opera, but also some wonderful pedestrianised streets with a true village atmosphere such as New Row and Cecil Court.
Why St. Martins & Strand?
Strand is an important gateway between Westminster and the City of London and home to some iconic locations such as The Savoy Hotel, Bush House, The Adelphi and Somerset House, with the wonderful open space of Victoria Embankment Gardens overlooking the River Thames towards the South Bank providing welcome relief from city life.
Old World Charm, Modern Living
St. Martin’s Lane can be traced back as far as the 13th Century when it linked the two churches of St. Giles-in-the-Fields and St.Martin-in-the-Fields, but the modern incarnation is a bustling boulevard with a cafe culture reminiscent of continental cities, an Ian Schrager hotel and numerous restaurants including vegan favourite Mildred’s and the legendary J. Sheekey.
Historic Goodwins Court and Cecil Court are the charming streets rumoured to be the inspriation for Knockturn & Diagon Alleys in the Harry Potter books
The St. Martin’s Lane Hotel was former Studio 54 owner Ian Schrager’s first European hotel, designed by long-term collaborator Philippe Starck
