Cardinal Place
This slickly impressive glass and metal building on the corner of Victoria Street and Bressenden Place opened in 2004, bringing a much needed burst of new life to what was a rather bleak part of Westminster as far as shopping was concerned. You’ll find Topshop, L’Occitane, Zara, North Face and Hawes & Curtis, and there’s a good range of eateries. The space also houses the sleekly designed 3,000sq ft SW1 Gallery (www.sw1gallery.co.uk). And if you want to exercise – or exorcise – your soul after an excess of consumption, cross the road and duck into the darkly mysterious interior of Westminster Cathedral.

Cardinal Place is a new-ish development of shops and restaurants near Victoria Station. 


There's a lack of originality about the food on offer - there's a Browns, a Nando's, a Zizzi, and a La Tasca. But then who doesn't love a Nando's! 


However, the entire area is quite fresh looking, and whilst it doesn't let much sun in on a hot day, the network of walkways provides a cool breeze. There's also quite a variety of shops, which draw less of a crowd than their counterparts in Oxford Street - always a bonus! 


With Victoria being dug up there's a fair amount of construction noise during the day, but that's ceased post 5pm. 


A convenient and easy place to meet friends - it's very close to both the Apollo and St James theatres.

I've recently become quite a fan of Cardinal Place as there is such a great selection of my favourite shops and restaurants in such a close proximity. It is considerably less busy than Oxford Street and for a shopping centre - all the shops and restaurants are so closely located it makes it really convenient to flit between shopping and restaurants. There's even a great rooftop garden next to Wagamama for when you really need a break! I think it's definitely a new cultural hive, I just hope it stays like this!

Hawes & Curtis I recommend for their shirts. This is where I buy white shirts to wear at events and other shirts for social use.
