Carnaby Street

Carnaby Street

Carnaby Street has seen it all. Synonymous with the ‘Swinging 60’s’, it also played its part in the ‘Snarling 70’s’. The West End street has had a knack for placing its finger on the mood of the day and driving fashions and aspects of modern culture – particularly music.

Brixton Village Market

Brixton Village Market

Brixton is one of many London areas that has been reborn over the last couple of decades. In the 1970’s it was a place not to wonder into by accident after nightfall, today it’s a thriving, stylish, trendy, desirable, fun, fascinating cultural explosion and, at the heart of it, is Brixton Village Market.

Baker Street

Baker Street

There happens to be much more to Baker Street than Sherlock Holmes and the classic Gerry Rafferty song. Of course Holmes’ 221B Baker St. is one of the most famous addresses in the world, but he has had many well-known neighbours including William Pitt the Younger (who became Prime Minister at the age of 24), H.G Wells, the explorer Sir Richard Burton, Dusty Springfield and Madame Tussaud.

London’s Little Venice

London’s Little Venice

No prizes for guessing what lies at the heart of this tranquil and rather gorgeous slice of relaxed and refined London. Ferraris and lots of opera singing waiters.
Not really, it is, of course, the canal (although the first part may well be true also).

Leadenhall Market & Harry Potter

Leadenhall Market & Harry Potter

Leadenhall Market is historic, ornate, spectacular, awe-inspiring and, thanks to Harry Potter films, you can add ‘magical’. The remarkable marketplace located in the centre of London’s financial district on Gracechurch Street has seen trading for 100’s of years.

Hay’s Galleria

Hay’s Galleria

Hay’s Galleria sits between London Bridge Station and the River Thames and its importance in the area dates back to the mid-1600’s. Alexander Hay took over the lease on a brewhouse and his business empire flourished where tea clippers had propelled global trade.
