No one really knows where Fitzrovia is located, or what it has to offer. A good mix of homes, businesses, food, and medical centres, Fitzrovia can be labelled as ‘confused’, or in a more positive fashion, an ‘eclectic’ neighbourhood. Fitzrovia is historically bohemian, once home to writers such as Virginia Woolf and inspiration to many more. Here are our list of things to see and do in this charming district.
Did you know – Culture Trip now does bookable, small-group trips? Pick from authentic, immersive Epic Trips, compact and action-packed Mini Trips and sparkling, expansive Sailing Trips.

Banksy in Fitzrovia


Street art is everywhere in London, especially in the hipster-heaven that is Shoreditch. Who would have predicted that there would be a piece of art by Bristol’s most famous street artist, Banksy, in Fitzrovia itself? Located at the corner of Clipstone and Cleveland Street, just under the BT Tower, this Banksy piece is a stencilled rat with a message in dripping red paint. A sheet of Perspex now protects it, but you never know when the Westminster Council might remove it, so check it out before it disappears.

Go up the BT Tower

BT Tower, London

When it comes to dining with great views, the first few places that come to mind could be the Shard, Heron Tower, or even Oxo Tower along the South Bank. The BT Tower, located in the heart of Fitzrovia, is often only associated with communications, British Telecommunications, and possibly Coldplay, from their song Fix You. Mysteriously enough, it was deemed an official secret, and its 191m of concrete and steel was never marked on any Ordnance Survey Maps.

Two for £10 cocktails at London Cocktail Club all night on Mondays

To chase the Monday Blues away, it’s two for £10 cocktails all night at all LCC bars. The London Cocktail Club serves up the bee knees, old-fashioned, and even bacon and egg martinis with aplomb. There are many locations throughout London with one of them right along Goodge Street. Filled with those ‘in-the-know’ and merrymakers wanting to make their money worth, the LCC can get pretty crowded so it’d be good to make a reservation. It is quite easy to miss the entrance, so keep your eyes peeled.

Hit Charlotte Street for food

Charlotte Street is host to a diverse array of cafes, restaurants, and bars. With so many choices along with a single street, it is a foodie’s haven. There is Gaucho for Argentinian food, Thai Metro for Thai, Wahaca for Mexican, Zizzi’s for Italian, and much more. With so many options, you will be spoilt for choice.
