Getting to know Bond Street

Bond Street is a must-see part of central London for those who enjoy fine dining and upmarket shopping. Originally, Bond Street was an actual thoroughfare but, nowadays, it is in fact two streets: New Bond Street, which starts at Oxford Street (close to Bond Street Tube station), which then leads to Old Bond Street, which finishes in Piccadilly.

Wandering around the beautiful area of Bond Street is a great activity in itself. But if you want to add some extra fun into your outing, we suggest partaking in some shopping, as well as popping into one of Bond Street’s fantastic restaurants, bars, pubs and cafes. Or simply relaxing in one of the area’s pretty green gardens.
