Woburn Walk London – A taste of Regency London

Designed in 1822 by Thomas Cubitt (the architect behind large parts of Belgravia & Pimlico), Woburn Walk retains many of its original Georgian shopfronts.

Despite running parallel to one of London’s busiest roads, Woburn Walk is always remarkably quiet. It helps that the street is pedestrianised, but also that it is separated by a few blocks from Bloomsbury’s more prominent tourist attractions.

Designed in 1822 by Thomas Cubitt (the architect behind large parts of Belgravia and Pimlico), Woburn Walk retains many of its original Georgian shopfronts. The boutiques themselves are not necessarily anything to write home about – unless you happen to be in need of a haircut or wedding dress – but the plant-filled Casa Jardim is a delightful place to stop for cake and a cuppa. It’s also worth noting that the newsagent offers a luggage storage service.

As you walk from one end of the street to the other, look out for Grade II listed lampposts and plaques commemorating some of the writers who used to live here – among them, the Irish poet W. B. Yeats.
