At the top of Regent Street, above Oxford Circus

The Langham is famously positioned opposite BBC Broadcasting House at the top of Regent Street and just above Oxford Circus ( view location on map ).

This places the wonderful array of shops lining Regent Street's grand sweeping avenue designed by John Nash in 1825, within easy reach. This remarkable crescent was completely rebuilt in the 1920s and so looks surprisingly fresh. All Souls Church remains from Nash's visionary creation. Hamleys, Liberty & Co, Aquascutum, Burberry, Calvin Klein, L'Occitane, Russell & Bromley and Ted Baker are but a handful of the famous name stores to browse. On Oxford Street, London's second biggest department store, Selfridges and the John Lewis Partnership with its huge Barbara Hepworth sculpture, 'Winged Figure' of 1963, are nearby.

Theatreland and Mayfair

The Langham's position, at the northern end of Regent Street, places the hotel at the boundary of Mayfair (on the west side of Regent Street) and London's Theatreland (to the east of Regent Street). Mayfair and its epicentre in Bond Street, offers a cocktail of exclusive fashion houses and world famous jewellers. Tiffany and De Beers jostle for space with the likes of Chanel, Stella McCartney and Manolo Blahnik.
