Hailed by The Sunday Times as London’s best place to live in 2016, there’s certainly something special in the air in Fitzrovia. Once home to an array of famous literary names including George Bernard Shaw, Virginia Woolf and Arthur Rimbaud, the district is heavy with history and retains a certain kind of bohemianism in its array of quirky retail outlets, bars, restaurants and cultural attractions.
Unsurprisingly, then, professionals working in and around Fitzrovia tend to be those with a certain creative flair. For a long time, the area has been world-famous for its fashion industry, with influential organisations such as the Arcadia Group choosing to situate their headquarters in Fitzrovia. Other important sectors in the district include advertising, television production and post-production, and publishing. With so many exciting activities going on across Fitzrovia’s gorgeous urban sprawl, therefore, professionals working in the area can expect to spot a famous face at least once in their working week – great news for those who need their spirits lifted during times of stress.
In terms of commutability and its location with respect to the rest of London, Fitzrovia is very well positioned. With integral parts of the city such as Oxford Street, Tottenham Court Road and the Euston Road all on Fitzrovia’s doorstep, professionals need only walk a few minutes from their place of work to reach important transport hubs such as Euston, King’s Cross and St. Pancras rail stations or to find scores of excellent bars, restaurants and cafés. Its convenient geography also means that it is close to a host of underground stations including Warren Street, Goodge Street, Euston Square, Tottenham Court Road, and Regent’s Park.
