Covent Garden Market

History and glass.

Elegance is breathed in the streets here. When you approach the square in the heart of Covent Garden and you're in front of the neo-classic building that occupies the Apple Market, you'll know it's not just any place. The thing is that, in this old city, even this has a history since its origin dates back to 1654, when it was still made up of only a few small, disorganized, wooden stalls, evolving over time until the 19th century, when it began to take on this structure in which you can find a mass of all kinds of stalls today. It's pleasant to take a short walk around inside to have a look at the large variety of objects which you'll find under its glass roof. But if it has been the refined atmosphere that attracted you to the suburb, it's best if you approach Short's Garden, Floral Street and Neal Street; the meeting point for the clothing and complimentary stores of exclusive brands like Paul & Joe or Paul Smith. You are in one of the most luxurious areas of the city. To prove it, you'll see how Floral Street is crowned by a peculiar passageway in the air that joins the building of the Royal Ballet Academy to the Royal Opera House; a real emblem of this suburb.
