Why is it called Fitzrovia?
It is characterised by its mixed-use of residential, business, retail, education and healthcare, with no single activity dominating. The once bohemian area was home to writers as such as Virginia Woolf, George Bernard Shaw and Arthur Rimbaud. In 2016, The Sunday Times named it the best place to live in London.
Did you know? Its name was coined in the late 1930s by Tom Driberg. Named after the Fitzroy Tavern on Charlotte Street where a group of writers used to gather.
Fitzrovia, the creative hub
Is Fitzrovia a nice area?
Just north of Soho, near bustling Oxford Street, sits central London’s hidden neighbourhood. Fitzrovia is a friendly and bustling area, home to many of the capital’s creative industries. With beautiful residential streets, an eclectic restaurant scene and a quieter and more relaxed atmosphere than surrounding areas.
A diverse residential area with grand 18th- and 19th-century apartment buildings. Handy for the West End theatres, it’s filled with hotels, galleries, and old-school pubs. Charlotte Street is lined with lively bistros and cafes. The iconic BT Tower looks down across the area.
