Discover London's Paradise In Neal's Yard!

I believe even a big city has a place that is very different from the rest of that particular city. The place that is kind of that city's paradise, fairytale land, the place to escape from traffic and noise.

So today I'm going to share a new discovery for me, and it is Neil's Yard in London, UK :)

Neal's Yard is an iconic small alley in Covent Garden between Shorts Gardens and Monmouth Street which opens into a triangular-shaped courtyard. It is named after the 17th century developer, Thomas Neale. It now contains several very colorful health food cafes and new age retailers such as Neal's Yard Remedies, Neal's Yard Dairy, World Food Cafe.

The space is also activated by local events like the 10,000 Balloon release (as Aero recreates the new "Feel the Bubbles" advert on March 26, 2009)

The nearest station to Neals Yard is Covent Garden Tube Station which is about 3 minutes to the South East.

So, if you're ever in London, take this opportunity to visit this colorful and relaxing place :)
