Old Compton Street, Bloomsbury, W1D

Properties to rent and for sale on Old Compton Street, Bloomsbury

Old Compton Street takes its name from Henry Compton, who raised money for the local church in 1686. The street has shops all the way down both sides and residential properties above the shops. Currently the area is the centre of London’s gay community; this vibrant and lovely area has a mix of bars like G.A.Y and the Admiral Duncan and there are some fantastic restaurants ranging from Indian to Chinese. Muriel’s Kitchen is located in the centre of the street. This fantastic restaurant is brilliant for brunches and meals throughout the day. If you're peckish late why not try Balans restaurant which is open from early until late, right through to 6am, 7 days a week. The street has many coffee shops and wine bars that are great for meeting friends.

If you’re looking for a quiet peaceful property this street may not be for you; the vibrant, colourful and world renowned street is definitely a one off and attracts the world’s most fashionable people.

The street is quite unique. Whereas most of London has been taken over by the big corporate chains and smaller boutique shops are a thing of the past, this is not the case on Old Compton street. A lot of the shops are one offs and you won’t see them anywhere else.

The summer period is outstanding for people watching, as the restaurants and bars spill on to the street. For those in London to benefit from the many shows and theatre productions, Old Compton Street has Miss Saigon currently showing in the Prince of Wales Theatre and from May 2016 Disney Aladdin will be showing.

You are only a short walk away from Soho square where even in the winter you will see people enjoying the lush green square.

Properties that come on in this street will rent or sell in hours and there is never a shortage of applicants that want to live here.
