Harrods
For more than 150 years, nearby Harrods has been a go-to stop for fabulous shopping. “Harrods is one of those places that you just never get tired of visiting, because it’s so much more than a department store. It’s the history that makes this place so special.”

The Berkeley

A hotel located around the corner from Motcomb, “the Berkeley is perfect for me,” Bartiromo says. “It is low-key, practical and very well located. I need a business hotel, not a trendy spot. I need a place where there are black cars outside and a fax machine ready to use.” 

When they’re not at the Lanesborough, Bartiromo and husband Jonathan Steinberg, the CEO of WisdomTree, an exchange traded fund provider, often stay at The Berkeley and try to take advantage of the limited free time they have in their busy schedules. Wilton Place.

Errol Douglas Salon
Bartiromo says she prizes Errol Douglas Salon for its excellent (and fast) hair blowouts. “They have a great group of stylists. You are in and out of there in no time, and your hair always looks great.” Then it’s on to dinner at Annabel’s, a private club. Errol Douglas Salon, 18 Motcomb St., Knightsbridge

Jonathan Wylder
“I really admire Jonathan Wylder’s work and try to stop into his gallery when I can. He is an extremely talented sculptor. On one of my visits, I purchased a piece of a woman kneeling with her head down and long hair. It’s absolutely beautiful, and now it sits in my living room.” The Osborne Studio Gallery Representing Jonathan Wylder, 2 Motcomb St.

Hyde Park
“I love grabbing a coffee and then heading to Hyde Park,” Bartiromo says. “The stroll from the Berkeley Hotel through the park and toward the royal family structures and the queen’s house is absolutely beautiful, and it is a great place to clear your mind.”

Motcomb Street

Maria Bartiromo, host of Wall Street Journal Report with Maria Bartiromo and anchor of CNBC’s Closing Bell with Maria Bartiromo, often travels for work, but it’s not just interviews that inspire her to hop on a plane—often headed to London. Bartiromo (aka “Money Honey,” as she is known on Wall Street) says one of her favorite streets in the world is Motcomb Street in the City of Westminster. On Motcomb, Bartiromo says, everything is right at her fingertips— a trait it shares with many streets in her hometown of New York City. With a nearby park, galleries, restaurants and shops, Motcomb is a place where Bartiromo says she can relax while keeping her finger on the pulse of breaking business news.
