Covent Garden History...
- A settlement has existed in the area since the Roman times of Londinium.
- "Convent Garden" (later corrupted to Covent Garden as we know it today) was the name given, during the reign of King John (1199–1256), to a 40 acre (160,000 m²) patch in the county of Middlesex, bordered west and east by what is now St. Martin's Lane and Drury Lane, and north and south by Floral Street and a line drawn from Chandos Place, along Maiden Lane and Exeter Street to the Aldwych.
- In this quadrangle the Abbey or Convent of St. Peter, Westminster, maintained a large kitchen garden throughout the Middle Ages to provide its daily food. Over the next three centuries, the monks' old "convent garden" became a major source of fruit and vegetables in London and was managed by a succession of leaseholders by grant from the Abbot of Westminster.
- This type of lease eventually led to property disputes throughout the kingdom, which Henry VIII solved in 1540 by the stroke of a pen when he dissolved the monasteries and appropriated their land.
- King Henry VIII granted part of the land to Baron Russell, Lord High Admiral and, later, Earl of Bedford. In fulfilment of his father's dying wish, King Edward VI bestowed the remainder of the convent garden in 1547 to his maternal uncle, Edward Seymour, the Duke of Somerset who began building Somerset House on the south side of Strand the next year. When Seymour was beheaded for treason in 1552, the land once again came into royal gift, and was awarded four months later to one of those who had contributed to Seymour's downfall. Forty acres (160,000 m²), known as "le Covent Garden" plus "the long acre", were granted by royal patent in perpetuity to the Earl of Bedford.
1600s to 1800s
- The modern-day Covent Garden has its roots in the early 17th century when land ("the Convent's Garden") was redeveloped by Francis Russell, 4th Earl of Bedford. The area was designed by Inigo Jones, the first and greatest of English Renaissance architects. He was inspired by late 15th century and early 16th century planned market towns known as bastides (themselves modelled on Roman colonial towns by way of nearby monasteries, of which "Convent" Garden was one). The centrepiece of the project was an arcaded piazza. The church of St Paul's, Covent Garden stood at the centre of the western side of the piazza. A market, which was originally open air, occupied the centre of the piazza.
- The area rapidly became a base for market traders, and following the Great Fire of London of 1666 which destroyed 'rival' markets towards the east of the city, the market became the most important in the country. Exotic items from around the world were carried on boats up the River Thames and sold on from Covent Garden. The first mention of a Punch and Judy show in Britain was recorded by diarist Samuel Pepys, who saw such a show in the square in May 1662. Today Covent Garden is the only part of London licensed for street entertainment. In 1830 a grand building reminiscent of the Roman baths such as those found in Bath was built to provide a more permanent trading centre.
Modern day period
- By the end of the 1960s, traffic congestion in the surrounding area had reached such a level that the use of the square as a market, which required increasingly large lorries for deliveries and distribution, was becoming unsustainable. The whole area was threatened with complete redevelopment. Following a public outcry, in 1973 the Home Secretary, Robert Carr, gave dozens of buildings around the square listed building status, preventing redevelopment. The following year the market finally moved to a new site (called the New Covent Garden Market) about three miles south-west at Nine Elms. The square languished until its central building re-opened as a shopping centre and tourist attraction in 1980. Today the shops largely sell novelty items. More serious shoppers gravitate to Long Acre, which has a range of clothes shops and boutiques, and Neal Street, noted for its large number of shoe shops. London's Transport Museum and the rear entrance to the Royal Opera House are also located on the Piazza.
- The marketplace and Royal Opera House were memorably brought together in the opening of George Bernard Shaw's play, Pygmalion, where Professor Higgins is waiting for a cab to take him home from the opera when he comes across Eliza Doolittle selling flowers in the market.
- In the mid-1950s, before he directed such films as If... and O Lucky Man!, Lindsay Anderson directed a short film about the daily activities of the Covent Garden market called Every Day Except Christmas. It shows 12 hours in the life of the market and market people, now long gone from the area, but it also reflects three centuries of tradition in the operation of the daily fruit and vegetable market.
- Alfred Hitchcock's 1972 film, Frenzy, likewise takes place amongst the pubs and fruit markets of Covent Garden. The serial sex killer in Frenzy is a local fruit vendor, and the film features several blackly comic moments suggesting a metaphorical correlation between the consumption of food and the act of rape–murder. Hitchcock was the son of a Covent Garden merchant and grew up in the area; and so, the film was partly conceived (and marketed) as a semi-nostalgic return to the neighbourhood of the director's childhood. Supermodel Naomi Campbell was also discovered by a model scout at the age of 15 whilst walking through the streets of Covent Garden.
- In a somewhat different musical tradition, Covent Garden's Neal Street was home to the famous punk club The Roxy in 1977.
- In 2005 the path leading up to the front of St Paul's Church was given plaques similar to those in Leicester Square which became known as the Avenue of Stars. The plaques quickly deteriorated and only lasted a year before being removed.
- Covent Garden took its name from the presence there in the Liddle Ages of a garden belonging to Westminster Abbey.
- Nearest residential areas: St Giles, Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square, Bloomsbury, Holborn, Lincoln’s Inn Fields, and Temple.
- Covent Garden Market is one of the most popular tourist attractions in London. It is a food market offering fresh, artisan produce from a variety of outlets under one roof. Situated between Earlham and Shelton Streets, Covent Garden Market Place has also a 4,000 square foot food hall. This includes Thai food, a wide selection of salads and soups, quality sushi, takeaways, etc. Located in the lovely Seven Dials area, Covent Garden Market is very popular among tourists, shoppers and office workers looking for a place for lunch.
- While we clean your carpets you can discover the story of London’s transport system, and how it changed the lives of people living and working in the Capital, at London Transport Museum. Located in Covent Garden Piazza, the museum offers visitors an understanding of the Capital’s past by conserving and interpreting its transport heritage. Here you can enjoy: a dramatic “World Cities” walk, exciting exhibitions in the CBS Outdoor Gallery, Upper Deck Caf (serving coffee, lunch and afternoon tea), and a small picnic area which is situated in the main gallery.
- The Theatre Royal Drury Lane, located at Catherine Street in Coven Garden WC2, is the grande dame of London theatres. With its site being in constant use as a playhouse since 17th century, it is considered to be London’s oldest theatre. The Theatre Royal left a trail into the modern world of long-running musicals by showing a series of hits including South Pacific, 42nd Street, Miss Saigon, and Oklahoma.
The area of Covent Garden WC2 has two churches:
- St Paul’s Church. Known also as “The Actors’ Church” and founded around 1633, it is an Anglican church located in Bedford Street, Covent Garden.
- Corpus Christi Church. Founded in 1873, it is a Catholic Church located in Maiden Lane, Covent Garden.
