This sophisticated and sociable slice of Central
London is a shopper’s paradise, offering the latest

conveniently located between the major retail
thoroughfares of Regent Street to the west and
Tottenham Court Road to the east, with a handful of
well connected Tube stations dotted around the area
for easy transport. This neighbourhood is a favorite
