What to do in your lunch break
If you like sitting outside, there are plenty of parks and squares where you can catch the sun and watch the world go by – Berkeley Square and Grosvenor Square are among the most famous. Or, if you prefer your green spaces to be a lot larger, you’re just over the road from Green Park in the south or Hyde Park in the west. If you like fine art, visit an exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts or explore one of the many private galleries in the area. There are also plenty of cafés, bars and restaurants to meet someone for lunch or coffee. And, of course, you can go shopping (or window shopping) in the exclusive boutiques and luxury shops that line Burlington Arcade and Bond Street. Or peruse the designer labels in department stores such as Selfridges and Fenwick. You’ll also find a wide selection of the more affordable chain stores in Oxford Street, which is on the area’s northern boundary.

You’ll also be close to the theatres on Shaftesbury Avenue and cinemas in Leicester Square, as well as a plethora of late night bars and clubs.
