Event description

Description

We will meet at the Eleanor Cross in front of the main entrance of Charing Cross Station, on the south side of the Strand.

Covent Garden has a wealth of built heritage, with over 150 listed buildings located within the Covent Garden Conservation Area.

The walk will take in the narrowest alley in London, and Goodwin’s Court, which is easily missed as you pass the narrow passageway entrance off St Martin's Lane. The Court was the inspiration for Ollivander’s Wand Shop in Diagon Alley in the Harry Potter series. The Court retains its historic character, framed by seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth century buildings, with converted gas lamps still providing lighting. 1-8 Goodwin's Court is a Grade II* listed terrace of eighteenth century houses with surviving shops at ground floor, including bowed shop windows.

Along the Walk we will look at the new development as well as the old.

We will end up in the Bucket of Blood, otherwise known as the Lamb and Flag. Located down secluded Rose Street, this Grade II listed pub is thought to date from the late seventeenth century, with the front rebuilt in the mid-twentieth century.
