On Friday 11 September the Government announced that it plans to stop offering tax free shopping to all international visitors after 31 December 2020.

Midtown is the place to be for businesses. From heritage to housing, law to lifestyle, food and drink to future technology – we are diverse, innovative and we lead the way. Together we think big, do things differently and raise our profile to attract success.
Imagine growing seasonal produce on the roof in your lunch hour. Harvesting homemade honey from urban hives. Helping young people learn and earn – while gaining even more in return. A place where being green, clean and socially responsible is second nature. Where we volunteer, collaborate and innovate for the greater good. Where living ethically makes you feel alive. Welcome to Midtown.
In light of the current climate, the homeless on our streets are more at risk of harm than ever before.
As a consequence, BEE Midtown’s COVID-19 initiated Security Patrol includes a remit to report and seek urgent care and assistance for anyone found to be sleeping rough within our district.
Our BEE THE CHANGE homeless campaign has been re-purposed as a dedicated portal for on-street reporting and links to WC1 and EC1 support services.
Together with the Evening Standard, Bee Midtown is creating a pilot project on sustainability and specifically the reduction in the use of plastic within our district. We will encourage good practices in the area’s offices, cafés, restaurants, bars and shops to show what is possible in the everyday busy working environment and during the commuter rush. The methods will be simple, the results should be inspiring.
A new-look for Holborn station to transform your commute. Making that breakfast meeting first thing. Catching your connecting train, the gym class you’ve only made once – but still pay for. Or making it home in time to read that bedtime story. We’re paving the way to give you the time that matters most in your day – making the changes needed to transform your commute at Holborn.
There’s always a buzz about Midtown. Our district is a hive of eclectic activity where work and play go hand in hand. A place that welcomes the wild. Where green is a lifestyle choice and social responsibility is a daily objective. We’re proud of our urban environment, our heritage and the legacy we’ve been left to protect. That’s why we’re committed to preserving our home for future generations.
In March 2019, BEE Midtown called for submissions for the design of a new ‘focal and inventive’ information kiosk to replace the existing fixed structure outside Holborn underground station.
The existing, manned kiosk, located on Kingsway, oversees a bustling location between the City and the West End: a meeting point of history, culture, commerce, education and creativity. The structure aims to welcome, direct and interact with as many visitors as possible. However, the way people communicate, source information and traverse through cities is changing rapidly, and our interactions should change to keep pace.
The Midtown Big Ideas Exchange is London’s most dynamic series of debates, celebrating the eclectic innovation of Midtown and its people. Bringing together the brightest minds of the moment, this is our space to rebelliously rethink London’s business, economic, environmental and sustainable future.
Our free seasonal guided walks encourage exploration of our dynamic district. We tell the powerful stories of the people, the buildings and the brands that make Midtown so successful. Retrace the steps of the Beatles in Bloomsbury, find the site of Sweeney Todd’s barbershop or uncover Midtown’s historic Little Italy.
