On the eastern fringes of the West End bordered by St. Martin’s Lane and Drury Lane, Covent Garden is one of London’s most popular tourist destinations.
Since the 1600s, when Inigo Jones built houses to attract wealthy tenants, Covent Garden has had notable ups and downs and while it fell into disrepair during the 18th century, in 1830, Charles Fowler’s Piazza building helped to drive out the ‘undesirables’, the market grew, and further buildings were added.
By the end of the 1960s, traffic in and out of the market started to cause problems and in 1974, the market relocated to The New Covent Garden Market, three miles away at Nine Elms and the area underwent a redevelopment that led to business of all types moving into the area.
