The Fitzrovia Mural in Goodge Street Station

Just a short walk from Goodge Street station is the Fitzrovia Mural. This large piece records the life of the local community in 1980. Created on the said year and painted by Mick Jones and Simon Barber.

Plans of restoration started in 2010 because this mural was in a bad state. It has now recently been restored.

  1. I see it’s been defaced. So sad that people do that. I managed to get shots of it last year when it was still clean.

    Yes, I know… they’ve got nothing better to do I guess!

    Would you know when it was really restored? I didn’t find it in google 🤷🏻‍♀️

    So much to look at in this mural! A shame though that people have defaced it at the bottom.

        Yes, many times 🙂 I’ll make a point of checking what state it’s in next time I’m in the area.

  7. It was definitely a beautiful mural at one time. Too bad it’s been defaced at the bottom. I still like it and could stare at it all day and still see something new.
