With its historic and iconic architecture and rich cultural offering Regent Street is one of London’s most famous neighbourhoods for good reason. This leading global destination is packed with world-class flagship stores, award-winning restaurants, independent boutiques, coffee shops, salons and more. All tucked around the heart of the West End.

Whatever you’re in the mood to see or do…Regent Street has got you. Fancy a shopping trip? You could treat yourself to a new wardrobe at Burberry, Anthropologie, Free People, Tommy Hilfiger or Karl Lagerfeld, or stock up on all the latest tech and explore fascinating workshops at the Apple store.

If you’re feeling peckish you could book a table at one of the countless delicious dining and drinking options in the area. Think Heddon Street Kitchen, Aqua, Brasserie Zédel or Sabor. From the Michelin starred to street food favourites, you’ll be spoilt for choice!

You could also work up a sweat (and an appetite) at Barry’s Bootcamp or Third Space. Or perhaps you just need a self-care day? Book into Glow Bar or DryBy for a pamper session and emerge feeling like a whole new person! One thing’s for sure – a visit to Regent Street really is an experience in its own right!

Meanwhile, just a hop, skip and a jump away from Regent Street (nestled between Piccadilly, Haymarket and Green Park) you’ll find the delightful neighborhood of St James’s. This one of a kind destination has a rich character and an unparalleled reputation for quality.

It is home to independent menswear labels such as Luca Faloni, Emma Willis, Harvie & Hudson and a glamorous array of shops like Aspinal of London, Grenson and Fortnum & Mason. But there’s more than just retail therapy on offer in St James’s! You could also have a wander round a world leading art gallery, such as the ICA, Christie’s or White Cube, taking in some of the freshest exhibitions central London has to offer. Or you could tuck into some mouthwatering global cuisine from the likes of Ikoyi, Aquavit, Scully, Franco’s and Cafe Murano.
