376 Wukang Lu, near Hunan Lu
METRO: Shanghai Library (Line 10)
Located in one of the most picturesque parts of the Old French Concession, Ferguson Lane is the perfect starting point for a walk around the district.
Start off with a caffeine kick at The Coffee Tree and a stroll around the Leo Gallery before heading out to explore Wukang Road and beyond. Alternatively, conclude your afternoon here with dinner at cozy French bistro Franck or the Marseille-style pizza restaurant a couple of doors down.
There’s also a beauty salon, flower shop, and wine cellar to browse. The imposing white villa at the back of the courtyard was the home of a Chinese diplomat until it was converted in 2005.
