London’s Fitzrovia has become a magnet for top talent and creative industries, and it’s easy to see why. This bustling area is teeming with amenities, with a rich history and beautiful architecture around every corner. It has become a top choice for busy professionals and businesses looking to super-charge their growth.

In this article, we explore what makes Fitzrovia such a sought-after location for businesses, and how you can use it to its full potential, when you’re next working in the area.

8 Reasons Why You Should Work from Fitzrovia

1. Commuting couldn’t be easier

Getting to and from meetings in Fitzrovia is a breeze, with six well-connected tube stations at your disposal: Great Portland Street, Warren Street, Euston Square, Goodge Street, Tottenham Court Road, and Oxford Circus.

Stations like Marylebone, Euston, Charing Cross, Kings Cross, and St Pancras International are also all within easy walking distance.

There are also several major bus routes operating, including the N18, 88 and 453, and health-conscious professionals can explore the numerous TfL Cycle Hire stations in the district.

2. You’re spoilt for choice with after-work hangouts

Whether you’re looking for a traditional pub or a quirky cocktail bar for a post-work wind-down, Fitzrovia is well equipped and home to some of London’s favourite drinking spots.

Take your colleagues for a spot of retro sophistication by sipping cocktails in china cups at the popular Bourne & Hollingsworth, or debrief on the working day over tapas at the much-loved Barrica. Alternatively, head to some of the district’s more traditional pubs such as the Fitzorvia or the The Fitzroy Tavern.

3. Laptop-friendly cafes await

Most businesses need a dedicated office base to work from (and WorkPad’s serviced offices in Fitzrovia are highly recommended), but sometimes you just need a change of scenery.

Luckily, Fitzrovia doesn’t disappoint for the busy professional, with an army of laptop friendly cafes available for when you need to switch up your environment.

Beyond the well-known chains such as Starbucks and Pret, you also have access to some truly brilliant independents, like The Penny Drop, Riding House or Black Sheep Coffee.

4. Architecture that inspires

Fitzrovia’s charm lies in its blend of striking stucco townhouses, mansion blocks, modern residential developments, restaurants, and bars. Let the stunning architecture inspire you as you make your way to the office or your next meeting.

7. It boasts a rich and impressive history

From poets to painters, writers to artists, Fitzrovia has been frequented by some of the greats of our time. The likes of George Orwell and Dylan Thomas used to frequent the popular Fitzroy Tavern, whilst the great Virginia Woolf and George Bernard Shaw also lived in this popular district.
