One of London's most popular and recognisable landmarks and designed by renowned architect Inigo Jones in the mid-1600's at the request of the 4th Earl of Bedford, Covent Garden's Piazza and the surrounding buildings were created in a classical architectural style synonymous with Italy's great cities, with St. Paul's Church (nowadays commonly known as the Actor's Church) and its handsome portico as the centrepiece.
London's first formal square was originally conceived as a residential area to attract wealthy tenants, and through extensive investment & development in recent years the Piazza has once again become a desirable and genuinely world class residential address.
Being located in the very heart of London, residents are perfectly positioned to travel and explore on foot. The West End, Mayfair, the South Bank, River Thames and many of London's wonderful parks and open spaces are within easy reach, as well as the City of London and some of London's top educational institutions such as Kings College, University College London and the London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE).
