This pedestrianised shopping street with a unique piece of London architecture is located on the apex of Southampton Row and Bloomsbury Way. The avenue has grand entrance ways of Ionic columns supporting elaborate balustrades with the name "Sicilian Avenue" inscribed on them. The area has...More

This street would seem to be more at home in Rome or Paris, with so many restaurants and street atmosphere. It's a lovely place to grab something to eat or drink and was busy (but always with space) throughout the day and evening.
