If you've ever found yourself wandering around Victoria, you'd be forgiven for not stumbling across Elizabeth Street; a hidden haven of luxury shopping, delicious food and pastel pink cake shops (well, shop) to while away an afternoon. It's definitely more of a treat destination, but with plenty of independent and established designer shops (and lots of delicious of places to grab lunch) it's a little hidden hub in the centre of bustling London, and a stones throw away from Victoria (so perfect if you have time to kill between trains or coaches too)!

Eating:

Peggy Porschen:

If you haven't already been formally introduced to this pink cupcake palace via Instagram yet, then let me familiarise you with the gorgeous Peggy Porschen. Famous for their delicious cupcakes and serious heart-eyes interior, this is the perfect people watching (and cake indulging spot) in this part of town. On top of that, they also host cake baking classes at their school just along the street, which is perfect for anyone wanting to firm up their knowledge (or a gift too)- for reference, I wrote about it here!

116 Ebury St, London SW1W 9QQ

Tomtom:

Tomtom has fast become a bit of a local treasure in the area, and with this corner, and kerb side deli offering everything from artisan coffee, fresh pastry, delicious lunch (using fresh bread from the bakery on the same street) and weekend brunch- it's a bit of a legacy on Elizabeth Street. Plus, with a pop up eatery around the corner and a cigar shop too (if you're that way inclined)- there's plenty of choice for all tastes.

114 Ebury St, London, SW1W 9QD

La Bottega:

Finally, one of my favourite lunch pit stops! If I'm ever swinging by the area and after a delicious focaccia (or any fresh salad options for that matter), La Bottega is one of go-to's for fresh Italian food and treats (they also have a counter top selection of homemade cakes which is reason enough to pop in top, IMO).

25 Eccleston St, London, SW1W 9NP

Special shopping:
Hawico:

Now, if there's one thing I'm willing to invest in- it's good, staple, well made basics- which is exactly where Hawico comes in. With a shop filled with intricately Scottish made cashmere, using only the finest wool and factories- there's a host of variety from everything from classic jumpers, scarves to knitted tracksuit bottoms (which may be the most luxurious thing ever). They also offer a bespoke colour service, meaning any piece that tickles your fancy is available in any colour way you like too- pretty cool, right?

51 Elizabeth St, London SW1W 9PP

Mungo & Maud:

If you're as much of a crazy dog (or cat) lady as I am then Mungo and Maud will soon become your go to for all things pet (we were even introduced to Doug the Therapy Pug during our visit)! With everything from treats, accessories and toys- it's the ultimate pop in for anyone looking to pamper their pooch (pardon the phrase)!

79 Elizabeth St, London SW1W 9PJ

Les Senteurs:

Of late I've definitely become partial to a perfume, and as I posted about recently in this post- have been loving discovering new scents and signature fragrances. So imagine my glee stepping into Les Senteurs to discover some of their beautiful perfumes, and be talked through all of them too. The thing about visiting independent perfumers (especially the oldest independent perfumery) is that they're really able to tailor the experience. All it took was a few specifics I normally opt for for Pascale (the wonderful in store expert) to be able to handpick some of the most beautiful perfumes I'd smelt- all to my exact taste. Although some are more of an investment, it's the perfect stop off to find a new signature scent few others will have- or even as part of a gift too.

  2. I've never heard of this street but have many times tried to find something nice and a bit less touristy when around Victoria station and this sounds like the perfect solution for that problem! The cupcake place looks especially attractive to me right now..
