Lambs Conduit Street is one of our favourite streets in the whole city and it’s still relatively unknown to most tourists so you’ll find yourself rubbing shoulders with in-the-know locals here.

This area of West London has managed to retain its bohemian atmosphere despite the influx of affluent residents and high end shops.
