LONDON – When you stumble upon something that’s interesting and exciting, you want to share it with others. That’s how I feel about this place. Few have heard of it but it’s a little gem hidden away from most eyes just off of busy Oxford Street. It’s called St. Christopher’s Place.
Find what you’re not looking for
It was by luck that I found it. In fact most people will walk right past it on any given day. That’s because the entrance, which is between the H&M and O2 shops, is nondescript and probably only a metre wide. But as soon as you pass through, you get that feeling that you’re on to something cool.
This cobble stone pedestrian lane (postcode: W1U 1LT) which makes up St. Christopher’s Place, stretches between two streets, Oxford and Wigmore, and includes a series of restaurants to temp your wallet as well as a mini piazza where you can sit and people watch. And then there are the boutique shops, as well as the typical ones you would find on the high street, which together gives this lane a bit more flavour.
Here are some of my favourites that had me at hello.
