With its name derived from the Fitzroy Tavern, this area of small streets gained a Bohemian reputation around the turn of the last century, with resident writers such as Shaw, Virginia Woolf and Rimbaud.
Although dominated by the Post Office Tower, once one steps away from the bustle of Tottenham Court Road, the Adam Brothers’ Fitzroy Square retains its 18th C elegance. Timber and brick remind us of the centuries old traditions of English building. Wood is as popular as ever, particularly in wooden floors.

Useful facts about Fitzrovia:
Fitzrovia is a neighbourhood in central London, near London's West End lying partly in the London Borough of Camden (in the east) and partly in the City of Westminster (in the west); and situated between Marylebone and Bloomsbury and north of Soho. It is characterised by its mixed-use of residential, business, retail, education and healthcare, with no single activity dominating. The historically bohemian area was once home to such writers as Virginia Woolf, George Bernard Shaw and Arthur Rimbaud.
Fitzrovia is probably named after the Fitzroy Tavern, a public house situated on the corner of Charlotte Street and Windmill Street within the district. The name was adopted during the inter-war years initially by and later in recognition of the artistic and bohemian community habitually found at the public house. (The name Fitzroy derives from the Norman-French for "son of the king", although it usually implies the original holder was the bastard son of a king).
Fitzrovia was a notable artistic and bohemian centre from a period dating roughly from the mid-1920s until the present day. Amongst those known to have lived locally and frequented public houses in the area such as the Fitzroy Tavern and the Wheatsheaf are Augustus John, Quentin Crisp, Dylan Thomas, and Aleister Crowley, the racing tipster Prince Monolulu, Nina Hamnett and George Orwell. The Newman Arms on Rathbone Street, features in Orwell's novels Nineteen Eighty-Four and Keep the Aspidistra Flying as well as the Michael Powell film Peeping Tom.
