Seven Dials : Summer Style

Seven Dials

The cobblestone streets of Covent Garden open up to this village style area known as Seven Dials, as the seven main streets intersect with a historical sundial monument as its centrepiece. From there, you’ll find cool independents, cafes and bars, international brands and cultural institutions underneath the leafy trees and flower boxes that line the streets giving a relaxed feeling in the air. Atmospheric, creative and spirited, you can while away the hours exploring all the hidden gems as contemporary meets heritage on the streets of London town!
