Updated: May 11

Start at Bond Street Station on Oxford Street

THE EXPERIENCE

Bond Street is famous for its many elegant stores, exclusive brands, designer fashion, luxury goods, fine jewels, art, and antiques. Bond Street is in the heart of historic Mayfair and has always been a haven for gracious living since its foundation in the early 1700s. It still is a playground for society’s wealthiest, most stylish, and influential people.  This route goes from Oxford Circus to Green Park via Old and New Bond Street and is 1.3 Km long. There is also plenty to do and see down its many side streets, such as Brook Street, Bruton Street, Maddox Street, Burlington Gardens, and Albermarle Street.


Great for fashionable and luxury shopping, history, crowds, iconic sights, hotels, Museums, art galleries, shopping arcades, auction houses, designer clothes, jewellery and watches, and lots of places to eat, drink and be merry.
