It is a classic English department store and still independently-owned.
Old Bond Street was built in the 1680’s by Sir Thomas Bond, while New Bond Street was built 40 years later when Mayfair became fashionable. It is the only road running from Piccadilly to Oxford Street and each road is separately numbered, making it confusing for visitors.
Sotheby’s have been auctioneers since 1744 and the statue of the Egyptian goddess over their doorway dates from 1600 BC, making it the oldest outdoor sculpture in London.
You can visit Old Bond street on the shopping walk.
