Surrounding roads offer endless cuisines in a vast choice of restaurants and intriguing galleries close by offer the element of culture to visitors.
Culture & History
The area of Fitzrovia is brimming with history, as beautiful Georgian and Edwardian buildings blend with the more contemporary along some of London's oldest residential streets. Former residents include the painters John Constable, Augustus John and Walter Sickert, while Dylan Thomas lived in the area and Thomas Chippendale had a shop here. London's iconic BT Tower (in Cleveland Street) is Fitzrovia's noteable architectural treasure. Visit Pollocks Toy Museum to marvel and reminisce at features of childhood's past or visit urban art galleries - such as Jacques or White Rainbow galleries - which offer an insight into contemporary art scenes. Phonica Records, meanwhile, is one of the best places in London to seek out vintage vinyl.
Dining & Gourmet

New tea concept, Scandal Water, is a bespoke experience here, inspired by the vintage tea-drinking traditions of London's High Society, and featuring light bites and tea-based tipples for Afternoon Tea.
