Walk & Lunch: Fitzrovia, LondonLeave hectic Oxford Street behind and stroll the streets of Fitzrovia
Walk up Rathbone Place from Oxford Street, then veer left at the Marquis of Granby into Rathbone Street. This corner was made famous in Michael Powell’s film Peeping Tom with the first murder taking place in an upstairs room of the Newman Arms. Walk into Newman Passage for a slice of Victorian London. Continue up Rathbone and walk through quirky Charlotte Place. To the left is the shiny glass of Fitzroy Place – in its midst you’ll find The Fitzrovia Chapel. Continue through to Riding House Street and turn right into Candover Street (the shortest street in London) with its renowned Arts and Crafts buildings. Turn left into Foley Street and at the next corner you have a lunch choice. Turn left for Kaffeine or right for something more substantial at Clipstone. After lunch, walk along Langham Street to the BBC where you can see the new statue of George Orwell.
