“Somewhere over the rainbow”
Like all special places, you won’t see this multi-coloured location at first glance: you’ll have to wander the streets to find it. Neal’s Yard is a small square with vibrantly coloured buildings, just two minutes from Covent Garden tube station. Its orange, turquoise and yellow facades are home to small businesses such as herbal remedy shops, a cheese shop and a vegetarian café.
