Mike and I would love to welcome you to our spacious home just a few steps from Oxford Circus. Our house is a converted dress factory, built as part of the Lord Howard de Walden Estate in 1906. It still has an industrial feel. We have two bed and breakfast rooms and a self catering suite which all have a slightly different style. Choose from a cosy and quiet room at the back of the house, a larger sunny double room facing the street, or the suite with a fully fitted kitchen complete with dishwasher, induction hob and double oven.
Our neighbourhood, Fitzrovia is a little more bohemian than the rest of Westminster, with its quirky collection of cafes, independent shops and design studios.
We are close to BBC Broadcasting House in the centre of British media, so fantastic restaurants abound, where you will often spot a celebrity or two. Bonnie Gull, one of the capitals best fish restaurants, is just around the corner and the up and coming Honey and Co is in Warren Street. If you like to eat in, you can shop for the best of British and continental foods in nearby Marylebone High Street. There is a farmer’s market every Sunday and a host of speciality food shops like the Ginger Pig (organic meat), Fromagerie (fresh cheeses) and Dalesford Organic as well as a Waitrose supermarket.
If you like to shop, we are five minutes walk from Oxford Street, where you will find Liberty and Selfridges and in side streets like Bond Street and Carnaby Street a host of boutiques from international names like Prada to stylish British designers. And if you want to relax Regents Park is just ten minutes walk away, or our own rooftop garden beckons on summer days. Wendy tends this as a vegetable plot. see rooftopvegplot.com
You won’t need your car to visit (and parking is pricey round here). Part of the pleasure of the area is that we are walking distance to so many attractions from the British Museum, Leicester Square cinemas and all the west end theaters. We have a bike hire stand right outside the building and if you bring your EV, parking in Westminster is free.
