Warren Street in Fitzrovia, named after Anne Warren (1737-1807) who was married to Charles Fitzroy (became Baron Southampton) who bought land just south of Euston Road and laid out the first residential terraces in 1799. Fitzroy Street crossing Warren Street, Fitzroy Square to the south and more importantly, Fitzroy Tavern frequented by famous intellectuals, gave the area its famous yet unofficial name of Fitzrovia.
Warren Street tube station plus an impressive Edwardian building (now the Grafton Hotel) frame the entrance to Warren Street from Tottenham Court Road. The hotel, formerly a nursing home has benefited from Raddison Blu restoring much of the original early twentieth century architecture. The original tube station (from the same period) was redeveloped in the late 1960s.
Well maintained attractive Georgian terraces flank each side of Warren Street with sections re-developed throughout the decades of the twentieth century creating a rich diversity of style of architecture with mixed-use of residential, business, retail, and and healthcare, with no single activity more prevalent. Traditionally considered bohemian, Fitzrovia was once home to famous writers such as Virginia Woolf, George Bernard Shaw and Arthur Rimbaud. Often described as upmarket and home to some celebrities, like much of inner London, Fitzrovia has wide disparities of wealth and contains a mix of affluent property owners as well as many private, council and housing association tenants.
Thanks to clever street planning, car use has been minimalized by partitioning the street at mid-point allowing cyclists and pedestrian use only. At certain times of the day, Warren Street can be peaceful, more often it is a hive of activity and a great place to be entertained as well as live. There are two excellent pubs, numerous restaurants and cafes, shops and other business. Some chains, others independent. It gives access to a trio of mews, Warren, Richardson’s and Grafton. All three are cobbled, have gorgeous oldie-worldie architecture and predominantly residential. With over 5,000 acres of historic parkland just the other side of Euston Road and all the wonderful amenities of the West End on its doorstep, Warren Street is undoubtedly a fabulous place to live. It has the obvious benefits of living in the heart of London yet retains a community feel with small long- established businesses and graced by magnificent streets nearby, such us Fitzroy Square. The diversity of architecture is matched by the diversity of its residents making it a truly interesting and inviting place to live.
