Some nice restaurants and a covered market. Whether you fancy fish and chips, pasta or Nandos there are some nice places for lunch and dinner. Along the back streets are more shops, restaurants and pubs too.

I visited at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon, everything was closed. It’s about 100m long and takes a minute to walk along. Nice architecture. About a five minute walk from Monument underground station.

Very nice place to visit but note that nothing is open on a Sunday. That said, the architecture is simply stunning and it nice to walk around the local area.
