Focus on Mount Street


Tuesday 26th February 2019

Ten years ago, Mount Street was barely on the map. A sleepy through road in Mayfair with a few shops, mostly selling old-timey goods and antiques, it’s now one of the most covetable retail destinations in the West End. It still has plenty of its original charm, largely due to the original Victorian architecture, but now it’s an exciting and glamorous celebrity hangout that should be on everyone’s London agenda. It’s favoured for not being as busy as neighbouring shopping hot spots like Bond Street, and being more affordable for smaller brands, but a serious injection of new luxury has also brought a vivacity to Mount Street that wasn’t there before. Designer shopping, trendy restaurants and excellent people watching; the rich and famous gather here for good reason.

If you’re well acquainted with the usual designer shopping destinations in the West End, or you’re after something a little more under the radar, explore our guide to this up-and-coming street’s history and where to go to see and be seen on it.
