Neal’s Yard in the Covent Garden

One of the really wonderful things about London I find is that there’s always some little gem just around the corner if you’re willing to look. Neal’s Yard in the Covent Garden area of London is one such place. I was lucky that I had seen a photo of it online months and months prior to my trip. So when the time arrived for me to jet set across the pond, I recalled the Yard.

Having landed at Heathrow without sleeping a wink on the plane, I was looking for something to keep me awake, and something to eat. Wild Food Cafe in Neal’s Yard is a lovely vegan cafe. I’m not vegan by any means, but I do like to try different things. They had a great selection and the staff was kind. About three songs in, I realized they were playing the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack. Bonus points!

What’s so beautiful about Neal’s Yard is all the multi-colored buildings. It’s like some odd mix of Sesame Street colors, but they fit together so well that I don’t even mind. Neal’s Yard isn’t super hard to find but I would advise checking it out on a map or GPS prior to walking there as it’s not super easy to find either. Covent Garden was but a short walk from where I was staying at YHA Oxford Street. The YHA Oxford Street location is perfectly centrally located in London. Making it easy to walk to places like Neal’s Yard.
