Heal’s Department Store, Tottenham Court Road, London United Kingdom

Again another spiral staircase popular with photographers and its located inside a department store off Tottenham Court Road called Heal’s.

The spiral staircase boasts very bold and striking colours with the latest addition during a recent refurbishment of a massive chandelier located within the middle of the staircase which I think is a “Marmite” subject between photographers, some like it and others don’t and prefer it the way it was. I am fortunate enough to have both pictures pre and post refurbishment so I will let you make your own mind up on this as I will include them below however I am undecided. I have visited here many of times and sometimes I really like the chandelier and its striking orb like lights and other times I visit and wish for a bit more refinement and take away the chandelier, I just can’t make my mind up!
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.

Travel information

196 Tottenham Court Rd, London

Goodge Street is the nearest Underground station, only a couple minutes walk to Heals from here. I have never had any issues in taking photos of the staircase but I have heard other photographers have so just be aware of this.
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.

Was there last week. No issues to take photos. From bottom this staircase also looks gorgeous :)

What focal length have you used there? Thanks in advance

I had with me 24-70 and 14mm lenses. 24 was ok, but 14 worked better. If you have 16-35 it should be perfect.

I've been there last Saturday and it was very difficult to capture everything - it's very beautiful there. But 17mm at full-frame was very good :-)
