What IS it about
Covent Garden?

All the standard stuff on any of the area sites – including ours – has been said time and time over. Even the variations have become standard and familiar. (well you know how we all love familiarity).

On a blog though, you can be forgiven for originality. This blog is going to be about what's been seen and heard at mobile level.... street level.

After all it is a street site.

Bond Street

OUR CHRISTMAS CARD

The Virgin Mary - El Greco.

Beauty is Nature's coin, must not be hoarded, But must be current, and the good thereof Consists in mutual and partaken bliss

There’s a Christmassy story in the Soho section about the painting by El Greco. The caption is by Milton. because there is beauty in happiness – the happy part of the customary greeting “HAPPY CHRISTMAS”

MAYFAIR

We shall be writing on some interesting places to visit, eat, shop and just wander past some old exclusivity in the very buildings. Many generations of Londoners– including royalty have frequented and enjoyed this part of London.

We all get used to our surroundings – so this is also for people who live and work there…. just look up every so often.  London is famous for it’s skylines and the architecture is worth craning necks to see. More soon about skylines.
