Tors Hayward of Levy Real Estate – who advised Bourne Capital on the letting – comments: “Yeo Valley is a real best of British brand that has been looking to build on its presence ever since its original outlet met with such success. They are a perfect offer for West Walk which is at the heart of the regeneration of Queensway.”

Located at the Hyde Park end of Queensway, West Walk, comprises 135,000 sq ft of retail, restaurant and leisure space. Its occupiers include Meat Liquor, Ceru restaurants, Barry’s Bootcamp and the newly refurbished Queens Ice and Bowl centre.  As part of the wider public realm improvements in the area, there is a proposal for a new gateway to link directly from Hyde Park into Queensway.

The second phase of marketing has just commenced and further announcements are expected shortly.
