“We’re off to a street this week which looks like it needs a really good scrub. This is strange, given that one of London’s most celebrated restaurants lies here. West Street is home to The Ivy, the choice eatery of all luvies.
It’s not all high class though. The street is pretty run down in other areas, but still manages to pack in John Wesley’s first West End Methodist Chapel, and two theatres. The St Martin’s Theatre is home to that London tourist haven that is Agatha Christies Mousetrap, the longest running play in the history of the West End.
There’s such a range of architecture, people and feelings in this street. It’s what I like to think of as typical London.
