    The area in and around the glass covered building - a former fruit and vegetable market - is a nice place to spend a couple of hours. The pedestrianized piazza has a little italian flair. There are lot of little shops, an art and craft market, cafes, restaurants and street entertainments.

Description

If you wander through this popular shopping district today, you’ll find a myriad of street performers, cultural events, and sites like the Royal Opera House and London Transport Museum. While it’s origins date back to the Roman age when the city was known as Londonium, the name derives from the time of King John in the 13th century. What was then just a 40 acre site, formed a large kitchen garden for the Convent of St Peter at Westminster.
