By happy chance, the beginning and end of the hunt were at a pub on Lamb’s Conduit St. This is my nominee for Best Street in London.
It has a vintage pub, a bona fide National Treasure. It has one of the best - and surely one of the most stylish - bookshops in London, Persephone Books.
It has this adorable deli.
It has a fabulous 1950s-style Italian restaurant that does excellent veal parmigiano and where you can order avocado pear as your starter.
I was walking along at dusk on a Sunday evening so everything was closed, but it was still magical.There are other beloved streets in London, but I really think this might be my favourite.
