Focus on Bond Street


Monday 4th February 2019

Bond Street is synonymous with luxury shopping in the West End. Running adjacent to Oxford Street, Bond Street is its classier, wealthier sibling but no less famous or over brimming with choice. Among the tall mix of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian architecture, giant flags hang outside glass-fronted stores bearing the names of the finest fashion creators on the planet. There’s a sense of grandeur to this street that appeals to a global demographic.

Technically two streets, Old Bond Street and New Bond Street, the entire stretch is around half a mile long (about 0.8 kilometres). It is rumoured to have the highest concentration of haute couture in such a space anywhere in the world. New Bond Street commands the second highest rents of any retail space on the world, second only to Fifth Avenue in New York, but it is also one of the fastest growing shopping destinations with a promising future to continue to attract the world’s best luxury maisons.
