Lamb's Conduit Street London – Bloomsbury's hidden gem

relaxing
Relaxing

Quiet yet somehow buzzing, classy yet unpretentious, central yet hidden. What impresses me most is the concentration of great spots in such a small area.

I first discovered this charming little street shortly after I moved to London. Since then I haven’t been there as frequently as I’d liked but when my company moved our office to a space nearby it’s been my regular lunch break destination. I love the atmosphere - quiet yet somehow buzzing, classy yet unpretentious, central yet hidden. What impresses me most about Lamb's Conduit street though is the concentration of great spots in such a small area. If you’re into coffee, wine, good food, independent shopping, and art - it’s definitely worth checking it out.

To give you an idea of some gems that you’ll discover there, let's start with the wine - it’s home to the legendary wine bar Noble Rot and their wine shop Shrine to the Vine. Then for food, you can choose from the cheesemonger/French inspired - La Fromagerie or the Middle Eastern inspired restaurant Honey & Co. If you’re in a rush don’t miss the little Vietnamese cafe that serves utterly good banh mi or the cheese toasties at Knockbox coffee. Once you’ve filled your belly you can walk off the food while doing some shopping at either Oliver Spencer or Folk, both independent British clothing brands. Oh, and let’s not forget the coffee - Redemption Coffee Roasters is an institution in the London coffee scene with a great social cause too. They train prison residents and people at risk of crime with the skills they need to gain secure employment.
