Us and our neighbourhood
Once upon a time, this very building we occupy was the factory of George Kent, who made meters and gauges for a whole host of clever appliances. Once he moved out, BT moved in and this Grade II listed building was instrumental to the telephone exchange that ran along Kingsway, High Holborn and Chancery Lane. Today, the building still hums, only now, it’s with the locals and guests who swing by for coffee and cocktails, to meet friends, to park up with a laptop, or to stay the night.
We’re a stone’s throw from Covent Garden, Oxford Street, Bloomsbury and Farringdon, and with the Piccadilly line just down the road, you can get anywhere, anytime. We’re right in the heart of Midtown, as the locals now call it, which has plenty of bars and restaurants to check out, hidden green spaces to get lost in, and shops to go wild for.
