Explore St Christopher's Place | London's most buzzing shopping & dining destination

Before I started Hawkins & Shepherd and subsequently writing/blogging full-time, I used to work for a commodities trading house on Portman Street, which is at the Marble Arch end of Oxford Street. It was a buzzing place of businesses, shoppers, tourists and during the Christmas month of December it can get totally hectic. It's why us 'locals' who knew the area extremely well would walk down the less busy Wigmore Street, which is like taking a country road rather than the M25 at 8am on a weekday, and settle down at St Christopher's Place.
