Fred & Rory have the pleasure of speaking to Chris Ward, Chief Financial Officer of Shaftesbury Plc (owner of 16 acres across West End London including Carnaby Street and swathes of Soho, Covent Garden and Chinatown).

As one would expect, the once busy West End was hugely impacted by the pandemic, but as a result of Shaftesbury's sustainable policies and genuine passion for cultivating unique villages, footfall has returned to two-thirds of pre-pandemic levels and loyalty from their retailers could not be more obvious. Tune in to find out what they look for when selecting retailers, what new vendors we should expect to see and some great recommendations on where to eat and shop on your next visit to London.
