Experience the restored Fitzrovia Mural in Whitfield Gardens this summer
Following the rejuvenation of Whitfield Gardens at the end of 2020, Camden Council is encouraging shoppers and workers returning to the capital to experience this much-loved green space this summer.
The iconic Fitzrovia Mural has been completely restored by Global Street Art on behalf of Camden Council and now sits proudly once again overlooking the gardens. The restoration of the Fitzrovia Mural in parallel with improvements to Whitfield Gardens, marked another milestone towards the completion of the West End Project, which is addressing traffic congestion, road safety, poor air quality and the fact that this area has previously had less than the Camden average of public open space.
“The restoration of the Fitzrovia mural is an important part of the West End Project and I have received lots of feedback from residents and businesses who tell me that this faithful restoration has brought it back to the vibrant best.
“As with the improvements to the nearby Bloomsbury Rangers Memorial, celebrating the culture and history of the area is an important strand of the West End Project overall alongside its broader street improvements.
“We are very proud of the work, which demonstrates our commitment to making beautiful, safe and usable public spaces that everyone can enjoy and would encourage everyone who may be venturing back to the West end for work or pleasure to visit, spend some time and admire the magnificent restored Fitzrovia Mural in this green space.”
