It is a peaceful and elegant street located just off the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street and surrounds.Orrery, a classic French restaurant, Coco Momo, a chic and pleasant cafè bar, alongside many others.
If you're in the mood for shopping, there are plenty of small boutiques and interesting shops along the high street. Daunt Books is a great Edwardian bookshop where you can get lost between the pages for hours with their interesting range.
