Popular with media companies and creative, artistic business types there are many interesting and contemporary office spaces in this area.

COVENT GARDEN

The main piazza square provides entertainment in the form of jugglers, mime artists, singers and clowns to name a few extravagancies. In between enjoying the street performers it’s a must to visit Covent Garden’s Jubilee Market. It is alive with traditional and celebrated stalls, open every day of the week and with some stands changing its goods daily, there is always something new to discover from crafts, jewellery, leather items, clothing, art and much more.

As one of London’s hottest shopping destinations, the likes of Chanel, Dior and Burberry along with the best of British beauty and one of the world’s largest Apple stores can all be found in Covent Garden.

Working, as well as shopping can cause great hunger and you won’t be far from a distinctive modern pub or restaurant to combat those cravings in this plentiful location. Big Easy, providing scenes of Louisiana in the heart of central London is a tri-level power station conversion. With three storeys of bottles behind the bar, library style ladders enable the staff to reach the furthest bottles for your pleasure. Serving from an open kitchen for hickory-smoked meats the pulled pork and crab are simply stunning. If you’re away from the office and are looking for an innovative coffee shop to set up you won’t beat Covent Garden’s award winning Timber Yard. Being named Best Independent Coffee Shop in Europe in 2014 and winning the prestigious 5 Cup Standard you’ll lose yourself at work in this bright and welcoming store.

Covent Garden Background

Amongst the contemporary quirks that this area is renowned for there are some very traditional buildings and London Landmarks. The London transport museum for example, showcases London’s culture and society as far back as 1800. Highlighting the power that transport has had in creating modern London with exhibitions containing the iconic red London bus, the world’s first Underground steam train and a train carriage from the 1890s. The First Theatre Royal was also built on Drury Lane in Covent Garden which, celebrating its 350th year of operation on 7 May 2013 is still open to business today. This theatre was one of only two which were able to perform spoken drama at the time of its construction.

Originally ‘Covent Garden’ was actually known as ‘Convent Garden’ as the area was initially owned by Westminster and housed the convent of St.Peter. However in 1536 the land was taken by Henry VIII as part of his desire to break up the monasteries and was eventually handed over to John Russell, the first Earl of Bedford. After sitting un-used and unloved for many years, the forth Earl of Bedford, Francis Russell, commissioned Royal Architect Inigo Jones to create a square on the grounds. It is this design, modelled on the Place des Vosges in Paris, which still shapes the area and its scenes of today.
