Transfer from Westminster (W1) to London City Airport
In W1 district we will find one of the major roads in London, Tottenham Court Road. It is known as an important shopping street but also for the Withfield Gardens. On one of the houses in the gardens you can spot a 60 feet tall painting that represents a great number people at work.
Tottenham Court Road is also known for the great concentration of consumer electronics shops. The other area to look for when in the W1 district is Fitzrovia, a neighborhood in central London. It is characterized by a diversity of business, retail, residential, education and health care, having no single activity to dominate. It got its name after a local tavern, called the Fitzroy. The first records of the Fitzrovia name appear date back to 1940 when it was mentioned in the Daily Express by Tom Driberg.
A great part of Fitzrovia was developed by landowners, which led to the appearance of small, disoriented streets. Two of the oldest residential walkways can be found in Fitzvoria: the pre-Victorian Middleton Buildings (1825) and Colville Place. In Fitzrovia you can also find one of London’s highest buildings – the BT Tower, situated on Cleveland Street.
Last but not least, the W1W district. It is the final district to be listed in the W1 London area and as well as W1T, comprises a part of the Fitzrovia neighborhood but also the Great Portland Street, which has been redeveloped more than several times: 1746 – John Rocque’s Map, 1793 – Richard Horwood’s Map, 1827 – Christopher Greenwood’s Map, 1870 – Ordnance Survey Map, 1889 – Booth’s Poverty Map, 1916 – Ordnance Survey Map, 1945 – The London Council Bomb Damage Maps.
Great Portland Street is also known as Motor Row, due to the fact that in the early 20th century it was the primary street for motorcars and accessories related to them. Even the Benz Motor dealership once had their offices here while a few years after, the place attracted popular car brands like: Austin, Vauxhall, Jaguar, or Auto-Union DKW. Other less known car related companies moved on Great Portland Street at that time: Morgan Motor, Phoenix Car, Maxwell or Indian Motorcycle Company.
