16: Covent Garden Market Hall seen from Southampton Street

Covent GardenOne of the streets going uphill to the left is Southampton Street (Carphone Warehouse is on the corner) and the low building at the top is the Covent Garden market hall, the main fruit and veg market for London before being moved to Vauxhall in 1974. Fortunately, the area was saved from demolition and the buildings were restored. The market stalls here today cater mainly to tourists, selling antiques on Mondays and art and crafts on other days.
