Walk along Goodwin's Court

Apparently built around 1627, Goodwin's Court is a small alleyway off St Martin's Lane in Covent Garden. Originally known as Fishers Alley, it is thought that the current buildings not erected until 1690.

It is a lovely place to wander along, if you are in the area and need to escape the crowds. The beautiful bow-fronted shopfronts mostly now host offices, many of whom are happy to be gazed in upon, and it is still famously lit by gaslights.
