Covent Gardens is a shopping mall by definition. In person it’s a thriving area where the hustle and bustle does not fit into the four walls. Musicians and opera singers right in the centre is a norm. The food available tends to be creative and every stall and shop is different from the last. Covent Gardens also has the one and only actor sponsored school in England so it’s a great place to buy tickets for the Theatre or to support new actors in the rising.
The shard though it’s in the financial district the architecture is worth marvelling at.

Funny considering it’s a building of suits and papers.
