About Hampstead

This store is open and offers all of our regular services, including frame repairs and adjustments, lens changes and spectacle fittings, and eye examinations. This shop floor is wheelchair accessible, but the Bespoke room and the eye examination room regrettably are not. 

We have been working hard to ensure our store and our team are able to meet you safely. Please expect additional safety measures to be in place during your visit.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Design Notes

Perched on a corner in this leafy London village, Cubitts Hampstead celebrates the artistic history of this liberal enclave, from the Hampstead Modernists - including Barbara Hepworth, Piet Mondrian, and Henry Moore - to the many progressive buildings nearby, including The Isokon and 2 Willow Road. Inside, Aalto-inspired honey-stained oak sits above rich quarry tiles that nod to Le Corbusier’s Maison La Roche. A dedicated Bespoke room includes a bureau inspired by an original desk from 2 Willow Road, alongside former Bauhauser and Hampstead resident Marcel Breuer’s ‘Cesca’ chairs, ‘Isokon Long Chair’ and stools. 


The Hampstead Collection

A number of our stores have their own collection of Bespoke and Bespoke+ made-to-order frames, offered in nearly two hundred acetate colours or ethically-sourced water buffalo horn. Available exclusively at this location is The Hampstead Collection, four frames designed by artists from the Hampstead School of Art. To learn more about the artists and their frames, head over to our journal, or visit us in store.


Make a day of it

Our favourite spots around Cubitts Hampstead, tried and tested by our team.

The Hampstead Butcher: So much more than what it says on the tin, this ‘providore’ offers traditional cuts of free-range meat (of course) alongside fresh food counters stacked with cheeses, charcuterie, handmade pasta, smoked fish, and overflowing tubs of olives and other deli delights. Further inside, shelves are stacked with sauces and condiments from artisan producers, an extensive array of wines, and there’s even a stash of hard-to-find American delicacies at the back (and yes, by delicacies, we do mean Pop Tarts). 56 Rosslyn Hill, London NW3 1ND

The Hill Garden and Pergola: One of Hampstead’s (rare) hidden treasures, this landscaped garden is free to enter and makes a wonderful place to walk no matter the time of year. Its Georgian arbour and terrace are particularly pretty, giving a glimpse into the architecture of the original (and now since demolished) manor house it once belonged to. Stumbling upon it from the wilds of the Heath is like falling into a fairytale, albeit one that ends with a return to the main road. Inverforth Close, London NW3 7EX

The Holly Bush: The total opposite of a hidden treasure it may be, but we defy you to come to Hampstead and not be tempted inside by the prospect of a roast dinner and a glass of red beside the roaring fire in this historic wood-panelled pub. Find it tucked away from the main high street, up some steps and along a typically picturesque Hampstead lane. Your Instagram feed will thank you. 22 Hollymount, London NW3 6SG
