See Through Building...
Burleigh Mansions - a see through building - and smart decor.
Location: Charing Cross Road, WC2H 0HG
Description: Walk too fast and you may miss it. That's right, walk up Charing Cross Road from St Martins in the Field to Leicester Square Tube and there on the right hand side just after The Garrick pub is a see through building. Yep, the entrance to Burleigh Mansions. Take a peak and you can see all the way through to St Martins Lane... Awesome! Plus very a very smart interior.
