A Little About This Space

Tranquil Maida Vale is visually defined by its marching rows of Victorian townhouses, as well as its location on the Regent’s Canal—and Shirland Road, stretching from Kilburn to Warwick Avenue, traverses the neighbourhood at its heart. Its reputation may be relatively residential and family-centric, but Maida Vale’s proximity to Abbey Road Studios and Lord’s Cricket Ground promises some bustle, too. This luminous streetfront shop to let, formerly occupied by a pottery cafe, would be a fitting location for a gallery space, a communal coffee shop, or an interactive brand experience. Its spacious back stockroom is an additional advantage.


Located north of the bustle of Notting Hill and Portobello Market and west of posh St. John’s Wood, residential Maida Vale is quieter than its neighbours, but it comes alive on sunny days, particularly in the summer months. Both Londoners and tourists head to the area to stroll along Little Venice and in the nearby Rembrandt Gardens, while pubs like the Waterway are packed on Sundays when well-heeled residents come to sun themselves on the ample terrace. Weekends are a busy time for families to stretch their legs at the Paddington Recreation Ground, and Lord’s Cricket Ground brings in visitors on match days. The Maida Vale Underground station is less than 10 minutes away on foot.

The stretch of Shirland Road that this shop occupies is primarily residential. Just next door is an office and another shopfront; across the road there’s a well-equipped off-licence, as well as the Institute of Psychoanalysis. A salon, dry cleaner’s, and Portuguese restaurant are found just after the junction with Elgin Avenue.

Home Truths

While Shirland Road is relatively residential, this shop space is near its junction with the busier Elgin Avenue; use signage to direct amblers off the main drag. A business also has the chance to stand out and earn local loyalty in this space.
