This elegant street in the Marylebone area is close to Oxford Street - but compared to that frenetic thoroughfare it’s a haven of serenity. Along its languid mix of fine buildings is 91 Wimpole Street, a grand baroque building from the late 19th century, designed by James S. Wilson and William Wallace. It’s been modernised by architects DMFK, with a glass atrium that floods the interior with light. Modern furniture complements Wilson and Wallace's old proportions well, and within muted colours and a calm mid-century modern atmosphere prevails. As one of our Co-working offices, 91 Wimpole Street offers a huge variety of working opportunities, and has one of the best rooftop gardens in London. And the traffic links are great: Oxford Street, Bond Street, Marylebone mainline station - here, you're in the heart of the West End.
Historically, Wimpole Street has been known for two main contributions: the musical and the medical. For the former, the classical cognoscenti love Wigmore Hall, just around the corner, one of the finest chamber music venues in the country. WImpole Street itself was once home to Paul McCartney, who wrote Yesterday here at his then girlfriend Jane Asher’s doctor parents' house. Regarding the latter, along Wimpole Street and neighbouring Harley Street, you’ll find every conceivable medical service and therapy: here, too, is the Royal Society of Medicine, with a fascinating progamme of events. Despite its quiet, stately atmosphere, Wimpole Street is close to the busy dining and shopping areas of St Christopher’s Place and Marylebone Lane - and as it's close to the western, smarter end of Oxford Street, you’ll find John Lewis and, a little further along, Selfridges.
