Covent Garden


Covent Garden in Autumn

This part of London, one of the main tourist draws, isn’t a place I often get to. It’s too full of people generally lolling about, gazing at the living statues, sipping coffee in the Piazza. But on a visit last week I noticed a very nice transformation at the 'wrong’ end of Long Acre.

Covent Garden is a funny place. If you venture into the tourist trap that is the market square, you will find many of the worst pubs, bars and restaurants in London. Yet a few streets back are some of city’s best shops, and tucked in between the theatre land eateries is arguably its hippest members’ club.
