London Lovin’: Covent Garden

What exactly is in Jamie Oliver’s Secret Basement?

Found this green door whilst exploring the outskirts of Covent Garden!!
When the celebrity chef bought an old bank building in Manchester, his workers uncovered old Joy Division and New Order master tapes, as well as a million dollars worth of treasures (including gold, jewelry and a gun) in the basement!!

I had a helluva good time uncovering the hidden treasures of Covent Garden on 2 separate occasions:

The first was Jubilee Market at Covent Garden! Was sourcing out the vintage craft stores and cafès. The perimeter is also surrounded by pretty cafès and patisseries such as Patisserie Valerie and Ladureè, as well as a myriad of indie cafès.

Within Jubilee Market, a dizzying selection of accessories, cosmetics and items of fashion were dazzlingly on sale, flea-market style.

The second occasion involved the outskirts of Covent Garden, covering The Lyceum Theatre, Neal Street’s Dr Martens, and further out! Was on the hunt for Dr Martens’ designer store, obviously.

After this shot was taken, the man in the brown shirt kinda tried all means and ways to communicate while I was hurrying away. Kudos to him, he could say ‘HELLO’ in about Mandarin, Korean, Japanese, English and Italian.

There’s just too much to do!! No matter how many times I’m gonna return to London it’s never gonna get old. I love this district.
