Guide to Wardour Street in London

Wardour Street has existed, by one name or another, almost since the beginning of mapping in London. The current name, as applied to the whole length of the street from Leicester Square to Oxford Street only derives from the 1900's. Previous to that only a portion of the current street was named Wardour Street. Sir Archibald Wardour was the designer of several of the buildings on the street and it derives its name from him.

In more recent times it was known for shoddy furniture in the 19th century, but by the 20th century was the powerhouse of the British film industry. In addition to the film industry, Wardour Street had numerous bars frequented by the musicians of the time and it had strong associations with the music industry. Very little of this prime Wardour Street existence remains today. The Marquee Clubb closed about 20 years ago and is now the site of the popular 100 Wardour Street. Above which is Soho Lofts, quite possibly the most exclusive block of apartments in Soho. Wardour Street has now become home to a large number of restaurants and bars, a truly cosmopolitan mix north of Shaftsbury Avenue and mainly well known Chinese restaurants south of Shaftsbury Avenue.
