These pretty corners of the city are called mews; but what exactly is their origin?
THE MEWS IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY
Here is my personal guide of the most characteristic mews in London:
#1 WARREN MEWS
#2 BATHURST MEWS
#3 CONDUIT MEWS
#4 DENBIGH CLOSE
#5 LUKE MEWS
#6 HOLLAND PARK MEWS
#7 CRESSWELL PLACE MEWS
#8 QUEEN’S GATE MEWS
#9 STANHOPE MEWS SOUTH
#10 REECE MEWS
HOW TO GET THERE: the mews are not far from the subway. In some cases are close to the Huns from the others so reach them even with a short walk of a few minutes
WHEN TO GO: all year round
WHERE TO EAT: along the way there are many places where you can refresh, you are spoiled for choice!
- If you visit the Reece Mews within a few minutes walk you can see the Thin House. A very special house for its architectural structure.
- if you visit the Stanhope Mews South you can also visit the famous museums Natural History Museum and Victoria and Albert museum not far away.
