  WHAT’S LIVING IN Fitzrovia LIKE?

Fitzrovia is a mixed neighborhood of residential sections, commercial areas, medical buildings, art galleries, and schools. The residents are similarly mixed, ranging from ramen noodle eating students to celebrities. 

With 8,000 permanent residents and 50,000 people who work within Fitzrovia's borders, the weekends really seem quiet in comparison to the busy weekdays. Of those permanent residents, about a thousand are students living in dorms and another 1,500 are people 65 years and over. While about half of the population are British, the Asian population is also quite large.

There is a big range in rents here. You can get a one bedroom apartment for pennies because it hasn’t been updated in fifty years or you can break the budget with a stunningly modern detached home. It has some of the most well known streets in all of London, including Goodge Street, Charlotte Street, Fitzroy Square, Great Titchfield Street and Great Portland Street.

As you'd suspect of a place with a large student population, there are quite a few universities in the surrounding neighborhoods, including University College London and University of Westminster. There is a large media presence here as well, including a few BBC buildings. All of this ensures the area is one of the most well-served by public transportation.

Fitzrovia has a healthy restaurant and bar scene and new places are always opening up. Many of the smaller businesses are being phased out in this area, which means that soon housing prices are going to go with it – so strike while the iron is hot. A word of warning, however: all of that change means that there is a lot of construction and a lot of noise.

Fitzrovia is bordered on the north by Regent's Park, on the east by St Pancras and Bloomsbury, on the south by Soho, and on the west by Marylebone.
