Chandos Street is one of London’s gems, running parallel to Regents Street and the home of the best private healthcare in the world, Harley Street there is a wealth to do in the area.

The plans for developing the area were first conceived at the beginning of the 18th Century, as part of the layout of the new Hartley-Cavendish Estate but little progress was made until the 1750s.  First built during the Georgian Era, Chandos Street is built on land which was once owned by the wealthy Duke of Chandos who grew rich as an army paymaster to Queen Anne, hence the name of neighbouring Queen Anne Street which meets Chandos Street at its north-eastern corner.

Many of the buildings on Chandos Street are Grade II listed, and there have been a number of famous residents who have called the street home. On the east side of the street, numbers 2-6 which date from 1769-70 were once owned by Lord Foley and their famous residents include landscape painters Edmund Garvey and Harry A. Allchin.

The famous Grade I listed Chandos House was once home to the Austrian Embassy before their relocation to Belgravia in the 1860s, it is presently owned by the Royal Society of Medicine. In addition, numbers 5 & 6 are currently home to the High Commission of Namibia, having previously played a similar function for the island nation of Grenada. All this history makes the area a fantastic place to base your business with many attractions around.

Chandos Street is under a minute’s walk from the Langham Hotel which is perfect for business travellers and features the Artesian Bar, consistently voted one of the best bars in the world. It also runs parallel to the world-renowned Harley Street, home of some of the best medical practitioners. In addition to the Artesian Bar, there is a wealth of other nightlife in the Chandos Street area. This includes nearby pubs The Phoenix, and The Finery which are just a short walk away, as well as bar chains All Bar One, and Be at One also within walking distance. In addition, there are many places to eat in the area, just a short walk from St Christopher’s Place and Regent Street, with restaurants including burger joint Patty & Bun, Italian , and Vietnamese noodle soup chain Pho.

The area also boasts fantastic transport links, with easy access to both Oxford Circus, and Bond Street Underground Station, the latter of which will benefit from a brand-new Crossrail Line which will go all the way to Reading.
